Question about 2003 Lexus SC 430
The brake light on my 2005 SC430 just went out. To replace the bulb, open the trunk and locate a nickel sized removable plastic plug on the black moulding surrounding the light. Pop out the plug with a regular screwdriver. Unscrew the single screw under the plug. This is the only thing holding the light covering to the vehicle. Now, standing in directly behind the light molding, pull toward you and down and the entire light moulding will slide out of the frame. It may take a little presure but it will slide out. If you have a rubber mallet you might use this to tap on the top part of the light moulding to assit you in sliding it out of the frame. When removed, the light is easily accessable for replacement. When light is replaced simply slide the light moulding back into the vehicle frame. Replace the screw and plug and your set. It took about 10 minutes for me. Happy Braking!

No need to remove anything except one bolt, 10 mm size. Clip on the top, gently Pull down and toward you, do not force it. It is simple, but do not rush it. Be careful, the bolt is well hidden under the black cap. It is not the bolt inside the trunk, That bolt holds the retractable open...not the tail light assembly. Thanks to all the previous posted info.
