Remove the three 8 mm hex nuts securing the trunk tail light using a socket wrench or box end wrench. The black nut at the edge of the trunk lid has an extended round end that prevents a standard 8 mm socket from seating fully. You can use a regular socket if you can keep the bit level while rotating, but a deep socket is recommended to prevent stripping.

My tail lights, brake lights stay on even after I have turn the key off and pulled it out of the keyhole. Is there a part that might be broken that could repair this. Any comments I would appreciate them. Thanks oh I did find little pieces on the floor and wondered what that part might be maybe under the drivers side where the spring is

I have to take the cable off the battery or it goes dead. And the little part on the floor was kind of like a plastic washer with a little pointed top on it.

Thanks Nathan. The part was broken into pieces. There is a little spring underneath the steering and, back in a little bit that I wondered if it broke off from that, which would make the break stay on.
