You have to look carefully with a torch to find them.
Get someone to hold the tail light so it cannot fall on the floor.
Remove the wingnuts.
Warning (Installing higher wattage globes may melt your plasting housing)
I'm surprised no one has commented on this statement. For those not familiar with British/So. African terminology and new to DIY car maintenance , he does not mean a oxy acetylene or propane torch, on the other side of the World torch=flashlight.
Also, from what I understand, don't drop the nuts.
