Did this last week
There is a button on the side at the top that operates a latch. Even if you push and hold it may not clear. It's totally mechanical so press it a little harder at the same time you pull on the panel from the top. It will rotate down. Then remove the carpet pieces covering the back of the tail light. Remove power plug then pull out the holder containing bulb.
