Empty Bulb Socket
The first step is to open the trunk.

Then locate the grey plastic cage that covers the cargo area light bulb.

Gently pull back the tab on the left (driver) side to release the cover and swing it open.

Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.

If you have trouble removing the old bulb, try putting on a latex rubber glove to get a better grip on the bulb.
