It's a major pain. Must remove upholstery lining from trunk lid by prying out a dozen plastic fasteners and removing tool kit. This gives access (awkward) to four long screws with springs that hold light assembly in (8mm nuts). Without deep sockets, I had to use nedle-nose pliers and a lot of bad words. Light assembly is a mass of LEDs and a complex circuit-board loaded with electronics. Another example of the two-edged sword that is German engineering
