Instructions are in the owners manual. If you do a google search you will find a PDF of that manual, on line.
Basically you remove some screws and plastic wingnuts (that also serve as cargo net tiedowns) from the panel behind the tail lights, then take the assembly out, replace bulbs, reinstall assembly, reinstall trim panel, wingnuts and screws.

Just did mine and very easy. There's a couple of wingnuts tucked under the metal lip where the plastic sits on. Other than that, it has to be pulled out evenly and a light tap on the posts will help extract it.

2 Phillips screws on top of the piece of plastic that covers most of the rear of the trunk
Pull it up and over the trunk latch
Gently pull it away from the rear of the car to release all of the push pins
Undo 2 cargo net fasteners on either side of the trunk
Lift the carpet up and over the trunk latch
Undo all the wingnuts
Push/pull the whole light assembly out
