There are typically screws or bolts in the trunk/boot so you can remove the taillight housing without removing anything else. Sometimes these are covered with carpet or padding

I think this video can help you, hes replacing the bulb on his but I mean you see where everything is and the screws, the only difference you'll be doing is actually take the whole taillight out. That video should be your guide. :)

You just have to remove the paneling in your trunk and then get a 10mm deep socket to remove the 2 bolts holding it in, after that it slides right out. It's actually pretty easy :o
