Default high mount brake light replacement

Hey,
I have a '99 9-3, and i keep getting an error message on my SID that i have a rear brake light failure. I know it's the high mount, i just don't know how to replace it, or if i can just replace bulbs in it...? any information would be fantastic.
Thanks!

Remove the carpet/trim on the inside of the trunk/hatch door (a couple of torx screws, some trim screws and the two holding the inside handle).
You can then either remove the entire light assembly (two 10mm nuts) or just the individual bulbs (the just turn about 1/3 of a turn and pop out), they are in white holders.

There are two rubber plugs on the inside of the hatch just under the brake light. Pull them out. Theres a 10mm nut under each plug. Undo those and carefully pull the brake light assembly off. It can break very easily.
