Question about Ford Fairmont
I have a '98 build EL Falcon. If the tail light assembly hasn't been out before, inside the boot there are these 2 locating pins coated in plastic. These are attached near the outer edge of the assembly, running inside the boot. The square shaped hard plastic bits protruding inwards are for screws to attach to - so don't remove these. I had to get the plastic off to free the locating pins to remove the assembly. The second part is the 2 screws towards the reverse light end of the assembly. You access these from the outside of the car. Once these are undone the assembly should come out far enough to access the bulbs - as wiring is attached. There are 3 accessible bulbs available to replace. The brake light and the indicator bulb holders are in line with each other and you twist them out of the assembly, then remove the actual bulb and replace. To replace the assembly, put the locating pins into position and then the rest until sitting correctly and re-install the 2 screws.

If there are no screws holding the lens on check the trunk for large wing nuts that hold the light assembly in.
