Look inside the trunk lid right behind the light. If you look closely you'll see three holes and the nuts are deep inside the holes. You'll need a long extension and IIRC a 10mm deep socket. Just be careful not to drop the nuts inside the lid. Should take no longer than 15 minutes to replace the light assembly. Might take a little longer if its stuck around the edges inside the housing and you have to force it out.
