Undo the fasteners in the trunk. It'* pretty simple. You mean you want to change the LAMPS themselves, right?

You don't have to remove the light assemblies. Pull the carpet back, press the lock tab, and rotate the plugs out with the lamps in them.

I'm assuming the assemblies are also right there and really easy to pull with a couple of nuts/screws or whatever. Need to fix a broken stud on one of mine.
