Which light bulb? most of them are pretty darn easy to change, come out to the next meet and we can change it, just bring the parts.

Open the trunk and look at the carpet trim on the side by the rear light assembly, You'll see a little circle of trim - pull that out and there will be a bolt that you unscrew.
Stuff a small rag in that area before unscrewing the bolt (it's a real drag if the bolt drops in behind the carpet trim.
Once the bolt's undone, the whole light assembly pulls away from the car.
Couple more screws or plastic tabs and the assembly opens up allowing the bulb(s) to be replaced

I did that but after unscrew.

I can't pull away the whole light assembly, I don't want to force it so I give up. =(

From memory, there's a rubber seal that sticks against the body of the car and a locating pin on the outside edge. Wiggle the whole light assembly and pull towards the rear of the car, not to the outside.
