Default 2002 Camry tail light replacement

Hi,

I have a cracked tail light lens on my 2002 Camry. I found the part
(3121938RAS) for about $100 bucks online. If I order it, how hard are
these things to replace for someone who has basically zero autobody
experience. Are there any tutorials online that will walk you through
it? Also - anyone have a recommendation for the cheapest place I could
find that part?

Thank so much!
Dan

Get your parts from a junk yard, errr, "used auto parts" place. If they
take if off the junker it will be 50% of the retail price. If you take
it off, maybe 30%.

Undo the clips that hold the rug in the trunk. Just use force. Then
there will be two or four nuts on studs that hold the light assembly in
place. Of course you will have to disconnect the electrical wires using
the connectors. It's actually pretty easy.
