removal

You lill need to pull the carpet back from the declid, then you will see the wiring harness. just step by step disasemble. I did it without a shop manual, was going to get my decklid repainted (scratches from prior owner) but the guy I was going to get to do it didn't have time and I had to put it back together.... I think you will need a phillips and a 10 mil socket if I rember right....

KaylaKipp2 As per Haynes Manual...open luggage compartment, remove carpet trim from behind the light unit. Unclip the bulbholder from the reflector. Pull out the relevant wedge type bulb from the holder, fit new buld and install in reverse order

hope it helps
