I'm too lazy, to type it out, but here is some copy/paste from this Celicatech thread. Props to the original author. Simple really, just try not to damage the light in step one.

Step one is to remove the amber (corner) cover, which can be done by inserting a flathead screwdriver into the seam between it and the main portion of the tailight. It pops loose, then you disconnect the socket from the cover.

Step two: remove the two screws that were hidden under the amber corner light cover.

Step three: find the plastic cover on the top of the light assembly (might be hidden by the trunk's weatherstripping). Pop it off and there's a screw to remove.

Step four: pull the taillight assembly gently out of the clips that should be holding it on. Pull straight out, no twisting.

If you need a diagram, consult the owners manual if you have one.
