hey i have a 94 i am pretty sure its all the same, but after pulling the plastic/fabric off there should be four nuts, You have to remove the whole tail light assembly. but be sure to use lub on the nuts and let it sit, cause they tend to break the plastic the holds them in the tail light, speaking from personal experiacne, and tail lights arnt to cheap. but after that u will have the back side of the taillight with the four wiring sets.

Install is the oppisite.

I suggest anti-seize or some type of synthetic lubricant on the bolts before putting the nuts back on.

I hope that helps

just let us kno
