you need a philips screwdriver and a flashlight, and a telescoping magnet is recommended.
the best way to do this would be to empty your trunk, and lay in the trunk on your back with your legs hanging out and your flashlight pointed up at your work.
inside the trunk directly under the stoplamp you should see a connector, disconnect that and you should see a philips screw. remove the screw.
this part is a little tricky, shine the light up and to the left so that you can see the fastener that holds the bulb into the lamp. take your screwdriver, and place the tip on the flat part that sticks off of the bulb socket and press, so that you can turn it. once the socket is released, remove the bulb socket & bulb with its wire completely.
next, about 2-3 inches to the left of the rectangle where you removed the bulb & socket you should see a hole that is covered with a black foam. remove the foam from the hole, look straight up and you will see another philips screw. remove it, i recommend using a magnet to pull it from its hole after you've loosened it almost all the way, but whatever you do, do NOT do NOT drop that screw. it is almost impossible to retrieve and if you dont, it will rattle.
once you have both screws removed, get out of the trunk and go into the backseat and lift the 3rd brakelamp assembly off of the package tray; it may need a little negotiation, but be patient, it will come out.
once you have the stoplamp assembly out of the car, take the bulb socket, it should have a long flat tip at the bottom. take a pair of dikes and cut that tip completely off. replace the bulb, and install the bulb & socket into the lamp assembly, and re-install the lamp from inside the car, slowly and carefully slding it back into place. (hint, the more of the flat tip that you cut off, the easier it will slide into place).
once the lamp is back in place, hook up the connector, and re-install the screws, and you're done.

Purge Control Valve Problem
The "Purge Control Solenoid Valve" is the "Purge Control Valve".
Rough idle is a typical symptom of something amiss with the purge control portion of the evaporative emissions system. It could be the valve itself is not operating correctly, the evap canister (vapor canister) may be leaking, or full of raw gas instead of vapor, or maybe even the purge control valve is getting a faulty signal from the ECU.
The soleniod is checked by applying a voltage to it and checking to see if it closes, or opens (I'm not sure if its un-energized state is normally open, or normally closed). If the valve is bad it is a no-brainer to replace.
The vapor canister can be removed and checked to see if it is full of raw gas (not supposed to be), but checking it for leaks is a bit involved, and probably requires equipmet not normally owned by a home mechanic. Vapor canister failure on cars with a lot of miles is common. Replacement is the fix.
Of course if the ECU is not sending a purge signal to the valve correctly, figuring out why may proove difficult, and possibilities could even include a faulty ECU. I expect this is unlikely though.
It's a $20 part. I first would change pcv valve because it can give same error if it's plugged up. You can always remove it and shake it. It should rattle around real easy. If not, it should be repalced
