You access these bulbs from the inside of the trunk lid. Remove the carpet type cover by inserting a small slot screwdriver in the opening of the holding clips. Remove all of the clips, and the cover comes off easily. Then you can reach in through holes in the metal to access the lights. You will need to twist the bulb holder like you would if you were unscrewing a standard screw (counter clockwise) from the side the wire attaches to the light bulb socket. It's a snap in place fixture, so it can be tough to turn. When it comes loose, it only needs to turn a small amount to remove the light fixture from the socket that holds it in place. Once you have it out, simply pull the bulb straight out and put the new one in. Then reverse the process that you used to take it all apart.

raise trunk lid look on the inside behind your license plate light there should be access to the bulb there. You will see the wires going in to the bulb there will either be a flt plate that can be removed to access bulb or where the wires enter there will be a round socket that you can twist counter clockwise and remove the bulb socket for bulb replacement.
hope this helps.
Did you try with the key? The keyhole is in the top left corner in the trunk by license plate (opposite to the camera lens).
Also, make sure the valet button in the glove compartment is released (or pressed)
If i remember correctly the entire rear light assembly must be remove in order to access these bulbs. This is true if the license plate is on the trunk. If this is the case then there are nuts on the inside of the trunk that must be removed.
Open the deck lid (trunk) to better access the lights. There will be 2 of them. Recommend replacing both at the same time even if only one has failed. Generally sold in pairs anyway.
Directly above the license plate will be mounted 2 clear light covers. On the right side of each light cover you can see a small plastic rivet. Push in the center 1/4 inch with a small screwdriver then you will be able to pry out and remove the rivet without damaging it. This will save you from buying replacement plastic rivets for re-installation. Remove the light cover with the bulb harness attached.
The bulb harness requires a short turn counter clockwise to remove it from the light cover and the new bulbs snap into the harness. No twisting or screwing. Replace the bulb harness the same way and fasten the light cover back into place using the plastic rivet.
Saves time because both bulbs and light covers are exactly the same style, there is no left or right. Cheers!
I'm guessing you are referring to the license plate light. There are two bulbs. Pretty rare for both to go out at the same time. It could be the fuse. You can check if the fuse location by looking at your owners manual.
I think the license plate bulb is W5W LL. (Check to make sure). You can find the bulb a your local auto store, Walmart, Target, etc....
remove felt liner from rear of trunk, (liner directly behind rear lights in side trunk) should be 4 plastic Phillips head screws. Loosing screws, then slowly peel liner away. You will see 3 nuts on each side, removing these nuts will loosing the rear light lenses, so you can pull the lense away from the body from the out side to gain access to the license plate bulbs. Re-install in reverse order. While in there I would recommend replacing your brake light and reverse light bulb. Hey your already in there might as well do a little preventive maintance.
