The tail lights are not that easy to replace since the bumper cover must come off first.
This picture shows all the screw and clip locations:
  1. Remove the rear bumper as shown.


Then here is how the tail light comes off:
  1. Open the trunk lid and remove the trunk sidle trim panel.


  1. Disconnect the connectors (A) from the taillights (B).
  2. Remove the mounting nuts and screws,then remove the taillight.


  1. Turn the turn signal light bulb socket 45 ° counterclockwise to remove the bulb.
  2. Inspect the gasket; replace it if it is distorted or stays compressed.
  3. Install the taillight in the reverse order of removal and tighten the nuts to 5 N.m (0. 5 kgf.m, 4 1bf.ft) .
  4. After installing the taillight, run water over it to make sure it does not leak.
