Haven't done this myself but I watched part of someone taking out their taillight. They removed the 1-2 screws holding in the light and then pulled hard. It had some clips or something that hold the light in even w/o the screws. Then I imagine that you can just unplug the wiring and plug in the new one Maybe splice but that shouldn't be hard.

This is assuming that you are talking about the whole module.

Unscrew the two screws. As you pull the tail light assembly away from the body of the vehicle, it will appear that something is not disconnecting. If you bend it down a little , you will be able to see that it is a rubber clip that is holding it. Hold the assembly tightly and firmly pull. It will release and then you can see how it was held in. Good luck.
