Tail Light Replacement

I have a new (to me) 2001 Volvo V70 wagon with a burned out tail light on the passenger's side. Does anyone know how to replace this little booger? Specifically I need to know how to get to it for replacement. Must I remove interior trim?

If you don't see any screws on the outside, you'll have to access it through an interior trim panel.

The reason for my question is because there are no screws visible on the tail light lense nor the interior trim panel either. Before I start prying, I wanted to know specifically what to pry. Thanks

Is it the style with the speakers in the way?
Remove the plastic trim cover with a small flat screwdriver.
Now is there a speaker in the way? If not the whole light assembly comes out by pressing two tabs.

Let me know

Warn, your response was right on the money. Bulb is now replaced and all is well. Thanks, Thiggy

No problem
I used to work for Volvo for many years and with only a few model cars you get to know them pretty well
