Just open the trunk and you can get to it from the back side of the trunk lid. Just turn the socket 90 degrees and it should come right out. Slap in a new 194 bulb and your ready to go.

Check over in the For Sale forum with LX-Tasy and racecougar and some of the others. They have access to many parts cars.

Or you can get them from Max at FiveStar.

Oh, and a tip: if you are replacing them because yours are burnt or cracked, save your money. I replaced both of mine and within about 3 months, they are both cracked again. I suspect the bulb is too hot and making them brittle.
