I have taken the lenses off 2 times to replace rear end bulbs. I do not have pictures but there are 3 bolts on the rear lens. Two are accessed from behind semicircular caps on the body just outside the weatherstripping that seals the trunk. They pry out with a flat blade screwdriver but do not force or the caps will become dented. You can remove the 2 nuts once they are exposed.

The 3rd bolt is accesses from inside the trunk. It is covered by a plastic cap that twists off (reminded me of the oil fill cap when removing- quarter twist and pull out). The nut is accessed from here (deep socket is necessary. When the 3 nuts are removed the lens pulls off the body.

If you drop the inside nut inside the trunk liner, don't freak out. It lands up in the body well on the side under the trunk liner.

Can't tell you about the lenses but good luck. It's an easy procedure.
