Can anyone tell what type of bulbs or number are in the brake lights in trunk?

How do you remove the trim from the saddlebags and trunk?

The bulbs are honda part 34906-mbb-611 and they are 2.50 each from HAL.

Trim removal is taken from Wing Lites sight. Ted says it best:

Trunk Sides - Remove the screws from inside the trunk and rotate the trim outward.
Trunk Rear - Remove the end screws and then carefully snap out the trim.
Saddlebag sides - Remove the screws from inside the doors and remove the trim.
Saddlebag corners - See below

All the pieces are very easy to remove with the exception of the saddle bag corners. They aren’t hard but it helps to know how to get them off to prevent damage. The side of the rear corner piece near the door is secured with double sided tape. It sticks really well. There are two inside screws on each piece. Remove the two screws inside the rear of the saddlebag. Restart the innermost screw just enough so it stays in the trim. Using a long bladed Phillips screwdriver gently tap on the screwdriver with the tip in the screw and the trim will pop out of the saddlebag hole. Have someone put there hand over the trim as you do this so if it comes free they can catch it. If needed repeat this process on the outermost screw. I then use a ball headed Allen wrench just smaller than the screw hole inserted in the hole to gently push/wiggle outward. Push outward until the standoffs are free and the piece starts to come loose. Slowly rotate the corner piece outward with the double sided tape on the side acting as the hinge point. Do this slowly and the tape will let go. If the rear portion (where the screws were) is tight and won't push outward you can spray some WD40 or similar lubricant on the inside rear screw holes (from the inside) to help get the plastic to release. You can warm the tape area to help the tape let go with a hair dryer on the low setting so you don't harm the paint. I hope this helps as I have had guys damage these pieces prying with a screwdriver near where the tape is or on other places on the trim. Don’t pry anywhere on any piece of trim with a tool!
