you probably will need a phillips screw driver or maybe a star screw driver (I work for NAPA AUTO PARTS). I think the size of the star screw driver is a T-15... take your time, its pretty self explanitory. If you're not sure, drive to the nearest NAPA or Auto Zone and ask for help, usually they will change it for you without trouble.

Are you replacing light blubs? Or are you replacing tail light assemblies?In either case you'll want to take out the particular light assembly. You'll need deep sockets. They are sold at hardware stores for about $4 dollars each. I think you'll need 8mm deep sockets.In the trunk, move the covering to the side, be gentle so that you don't damage the plastic tabs that hold the covering in place. Locate the back of the light assembly and wth the deep sockets, remove the 4 bolts that hold the tail light assembly in place. Unplug the wiring harness (hold down the tab and pull), then remove the assembly. If you are replacing the assemply itself, then simply install the new one, making sure the thin rubber gaskets are installed (use newer ones if you can). This rubber gasket is very important since this is the piece that keeps water from leaking into your trunk. Tighten the 4 bolts and replug the wiring harness and away you go.If you are changing the bulbs, remove the assemply as before; but now you'll have to push in a tab and twist each bulb out and replace it with new ones.Good luck, have fun.
