1.Open the trunk, and pop out the little clips that hold the carpet over the back of the lights.

2.Unscrew all the nuts on the back of the lights (five all together). Think they're 8mm.

3. Next, heat the inside of the lights (along the edges of the rectange that is cut out - you can see sealant all over it) with a hairdryer.

4. Pull the lights out. (I find it helps to hammer the 3 bolts on the lights that are closest to the outside edge of the car to help push the light out.)

Try not to get the sealant on anything (It's hard as hell to get out, unless you use "Goof Off!"). And make sure you seal the lights very well when you put them back in - use window sealant.
