You will have to remove the four screws which hold the shelf inside the boot, near the lights so that you can find the nut which holds the entire unit in place. It is also held with a push in grommit, so be careful when you remove the rear light fitting. When you have it out you will see that all bulbs are marked and held in with a half turn connector, much like the fitments that hold the bulb in place.
