This is a very common question asked by Altezza/IS owners.

To change the rear bulbs, you need to remove the tail lamps from the car.

1. Open the boot
2. On the black plastic strip of each lamp, there are two plastic caps/covers.
3. Remove the caps.
4. Remove the two screws behind the caps.
5. Remove lamp assembly from the car.

In the attached image, the red highlights where the screws are located.
