hey joe. This is quite a simple task actually. here goes. Step 1 - Turn the two black clips located at the corners of the trunk (up against the side fenders.) Step 2 - Pull back the panel that you just unclipped. Step 3 - You can now access the tail light bulbs. There are two tabs on each side of the assembly. They are black tabs that should be held in by a red retainer. Step 4 - One you release the tabs you will have access to the bulbs. Locate the bulb that has burnt out and replace it with a bulb that you can buy at any auto parts store. Thats it. Just follow the steps in reverse and your tail light should be working good as new. Let me know if you have any more questions. Good luck!

Hi. Would this be the same procedure for a 97?
