One thing I'd like to add, I don't recall having to take out the upper trim? Just the actual lens itself.

i dont think you have to remove the upper piece but i did anyway. i dont think i'd remove it next time. i cant recall though if it is necessary but i do recall thinking, "did i need to remove this piece?" anyway, easy enough. the reverse lights are even easier to do

Exactly right. You do not "have" to remove the upper garnish piece, but it makes life much easier. It is hard to grab on to the taillight to pop it out without removing that piece. It only takes 2 min to pop it out, so why not?!

Guys thanks so much for all of your kind words. When these burn out the next time around I am definitely going to go with an LED bulb. There seem to be some great self contained options available now.

Thanks for this video! I was able to replace mine with LED bulbs with ease after watching it.

Now is there one on how to replace the reverse lights? How does one replace the reverse lights? Do you have to do it through the inside (by removing the plastic covers) of the trunk door or remove the entire tail light where the reverse light resides?

Very easy. Yes just remove the plastic covers on the rear liftgate (from the inside). It's right there. Probably the easiest swap ever!
