the brake lamp is accessed from inside the trunk. The brake lamp socket is a tabbed socket that is locked into the brake lamp housing and lens that is mounted on the rear package shelf inside the the trunk lid then look under the package shelf at the top rear of the trunk compartment and you'll see where the brake lamp is mounted. to remove the bulb, hold the socket and turn the socket 45 degrees counter-clockwise. the tabs will then be lined up with the mating holes on the housing. you can pull the socket out straight from the housing.take a look at the orientation of the socket tabs when you pull it out; they are offset and only go in one way, so if you remember how it lines up on the way out its easier to put it back in.the bulb should be an 1157 bulb. to remove the bulb from teh socket, push down on the bulb and turn it left or right. again, there are two offset tabs on the bulb itself that will have to be aligned when you put the new bulb in. the new bulb is pushed in and turned to lock it in the sockethope that answers your question
