LED Reverse Bulbs

I am trying to install LED reverse lights but am not sure how to just change out the bulbs. I have pulled the black panel off in the trunk and see the three screws on each light but am stuck on how to gain access to the bulbs. Do I have to pull out the tailight? Can anyone provide guidance on how to just gain access to the reverse bulbs?

I've attached a pic of where I am at in the process.

Thanks.

You are correct, the tail light must be removed. Just remove the three nuts on the studs shown circled in red, real easy.

You pull the tail lamp out from the back side of the car, not from inside of the trunk. That is, stand behind the car and pull the tail lamp towards you, but not too far as the wiring will still be attached to the tail lamp. The brown piece will stay in place. Hope this makes sense.

Humm, so the reverse bulbs aren't LED? Just the tail/brake/signal bulbs are LED?

Is the third brake light bulb LED?

No, that isn't true. The red tail/brake/signal bulbs are 100% LED's. Not sure about the brake light....but I THINK it is too.
