ok seems one of my tail lights is out.
teh one that is intergrated into the boot lid jsut above the handle to open teh hatch...

problem is id ont know how to get to it and remove the old bulb..

ive looked inside teh hatch, and seems you have to remove teh whole plastic trim to get to the metal skin...

is this the only way?
or do i pop off the lense from teh outside?

any help appreciated
thanks

Sounds like your car has had previous damage repair. ie, a new tailgate.
The later model with the high mounted centred "Safety" stop light, have a little panel that Zorb describes.
