Just the same way you changed the bulb, through that access panel in the trunk area, there is (I think) 1 bolt holding the tail light to the body. After you get that out, you should be able to pull the tail light toward you and it should slide out. OH but remember to take off the black cover surrounding the trunk opening (this is what should have prevented the water from intruding into the tail light).

Thank you for your reply Neoshi. I did that, but there were only 2 bulbs which I replaced. The 1 bolt you said to remove, is that part of the assembly or is it somewhere else ?

Here you go, found a video:

It's actually two bolts on the outside once you remove the cover and the inside is just guide pins.

I would check the harness to make sure there's no water damage. But also check the fuse box. It may have popped from the circuit being submerged.

I saw that video too and did replace the turn signal and brake light. My problem is when the light is on, the rear tail light is not working and I do not know where/how to replace it. All these videos are for the brake and turn signal lights. I think there may be a bulb with the assembly.

I think you are talking about the led strip judging from the picture that you provided. There is no replaceable bulb for that and you will need to replace that entire taillight. If you do replace it, make sure that there is no way water can get into it again as that will ruin the light.

Here is the part that you can buy online: https://www.oemacuraparts.com/oem-pa...QtYXV0b21hdGlj

Or check on ebay for used versions.

Yep, sorry. I thought you knew you had to replace the entire assembly for the LED strip. It's not replaceable. You'll need a whole new unit but they're cheap used on ebay.
