Hi,
Not seen this done before, but...

...if there is no access panel in the rear pillar then look for small plastic screw covers. Take these out carefully and you should find the fixing screws for the lights.

Let me know how you get on.:D

As you look at the rear panel there is a plastic cover, remove and it will reveal a metal hex type bolt. This is undone using the wheel nut brace it is in the spare wheel kit(under the floor). Take the wheel brace and turn it around and use the long end. There are only two bolts per side the second lower bolt is accessed by removing the rear cubby hole cover, you'll need to fish around a bit to find the bolt. Undo both and then the whole light unit can be removed, unscrew the bulb holder(about 4/5 screws) and replace the bulb.
