do a search, i know i personally have answered this exact question before

take out the two screws holding the tail light in (they are in plain view when you open the boot), push the whole light towards the outside SIDE of the car (ie dont pull the light light towards you or anything) and the whole light will come out

it will be tight

bulbs come out from there

no!.. you will damage the terminals!

grab the socket and twist gently or firmly.. you will feel it pop and then just slide it out gently...

i did this on my car, EL lights to EF and i am mechanically retarted, and i found it pretty easy once i got going.

pop boot, 2 screws (small phillips head)

undo them, pull it towards the side of the car, ie pull passengers side tail light towards the left of the car, it'll literally pop out, as there are 2 pegs holding it together on the side of the car.

once done ull have 3 sockets, wind them to the side (you'll only be able to move it 1 way) and the socket along with the respective light will come out.

these then just go into the EF lights you bought.
