Thumbs up Brake Light Out -- Bulb Replacement DIY?

I couldn't find a DIY on replacement of my right brake light. I called $stealer, and labor will be $130 + Parts! They said they have to do a "reprogramming" which takes a lot of time. Why not just plug and go?

Anyways, has anyone replaced their light? If there's a link on here, I was unable to find it.

Thanks very much!
