open the rear hatch, pop open the 3 square covers hiding the 3 phillips head screws under them located by the rear hatch gasket next to the tail light assembly.. Remove the 3 screws. Gently pull the lens unit straight out . You may have to wiggle the lens as the pins holding it get stuck, Take your time, it will come out. The sockets holding the bulbs are removed by turning 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Bulb is removed by gently pushing into socket while gently turning 1/4 turn, then pulling the bulb out. Bulbs can break, so be careful. Be sure to wipe off bulbs to remove oils from touching.
