You do need to get into it from inside the trunk, and there should be a plastic "light bar" that needs to be removed to get to the bulb (if they did not change the design in the last few years) otherwise it is likely some variation of what I said.

Once you open the trunk you need to unscrew the 2 little black knobs that hold the cargo nets on. This will release the truck carpeting. Pull the carpeting back and you will see the gray metal around the backside of where the taillights are. There are two nut/bolt combination that you will need to unscrew (If these are not too tight and use a regular pair of pliers to grip them). Once these two nuts/bolts are removed push on the screws that they were attached to... This will push the entire tail light out of its place on the back side of the car and you can pull it out now to get to the lights. There are 3 lights that will come out if you turn the black fittings and then pull out.

If your third brake light is working then the fuse, and brake switch are ok (it powers up all brake lights). The most likely cause is the column mounted multi-function switch, it consists of the turn signal, hazard and brake light controls, on the right side of steering wheel. You can check at the base of the column. There is a large black three-piece connector there that all the ignition, starter, lights, horn, cruise control and wipers all go thru. With the brake pedal depressed there should be power on the white wire (its on one of the end connectors terminal 1, very first wire, and should have pink wire directly beside it). If power is good, then check for power on the opposite side connector dark green wire terminal 6, and yellow wire terminal 7 (there are near the center directly beside each other). If no power on either (green or yellow) then the multi-function switch is at fault. If power is present on both, then the rear signals must also be out, and you'll have an open connector going to the rear lights.
