If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
With engine off and key on, emergency brake set, place the gear selector in reverse, using a volt ohm meter check for voltage at bulb terminals. If voltage is present then the switch is working and the wiring to the lamp is good. Next check the other terminal with the ohmmeter to ground for connection. Sounds like a bad ground.
Are you sure it is a bulb issue, if all the brake lights are not working chances are it may be a brake light switch which is located on the brake pedal assemly.
If it's the bulbs, there are two screws holding each rear light assembly in place, open the hatch, they are on the hatch side of the lights, remove the screws and then the light will come free, to reove the sockets just rotate them and they will come out. pull the bulbs out and reverse all the steps.
If you need a switch, let me know, I'll give you the steps for replacement.
