You need to remove the trim from the trunk area that covers the lamp assembly that you are after,then remove the plastic nuts from it and remove the lamp assembly.Now all you need to do is to turn the socket and remove it,pull in the tabs on the bulb and pull it out.Installation is reversed for this removal procedure.

    SOURCE: cannot remove tail light assembly

    I had the HARDEST time with the lights...I never realized changing a bulb would be so difficult. Once you unscrew what you need to, go into the trunk and pull the lining away from the back part of the light. There are the white prongs that you will need to tap with a hammer until they pop out and then the light assembly will come out. Be careful though, I got a little too impatient and broke mine. I used a binding agent to hold it back in place though...GOOD LUCK!
