    Just open your trunk and peel back the carpet where you would find the back of the taillights...

    There is three or four 10mm (i think) nuts to remove, then just unplug and pull em out.

    Its pretty self explanatory once you look at it.

    just undo the nuts, the harness and push from inside the trunk and they should pop right out. when u put the new ones in make sure they are in, there are some clips that hold em in so just give em a little push from the outside

    Wagons are different, I presume.

    I changed my tails in NO TIME flat. 2 black plastic screws (clip on the side) then 2 10mm bolts. Expose the wire and voila!
