    No screw drivers needed. Open your back hatch. Peel the carpet back where your tail lights are. Loosen the 2 wing nuts on each light. (the passenger side is a little tricky, you might have to loosen your spare tire.) Then pull the tail light assembly out. Turn and remove which light requires changing. Reverse steps for the install. Really easy.

    yes, they are different. Look at your owners manual. It has all bulbs listed for the whole car.

    Look on the bulb they are usually marked what bulb they are. You can also take them to the auto parts store and they can steer you in the right direction.

    Make sure you pick Firebird Exc Trans Am for model or you'll get the wrong list.
