Rear Tail Light Replacement. Help Needed!

I have a 2005 Chevy Cobalt Coupe with the Subwoofer installed on the left side. Recently my break/signal light on that side burnt out and I have read the manual but for the life of me still cannot figure out how to get to the bulb. I can't even get the net anchor off. I need help and I am stationed in Germany with an American car so none of the Chevy dealers here will even look at it.

look to the left of the woofer, there should be a little plastic wing nut, take that off, pull the carpet liner from the back and then just twist the bulb out of the light.

Its tough, but not impossible. I did it by hand but next time I think I will use a pair of pliers or visegrips to give a bit of help getting the wing nut loose.

it helps if you push the liner away from the nut then try to take it off.
