    There are circular plastic caps behind each lamp, prise them off with flat head screwdriver (careful not to let them fall in).
    Undo the plastic screws in the holes.
    Pull out the lamps.
    Unplug.
    Plug the new lamps in and refit.
    Done.

    I'm assuming it's a 3-door model, not sportback.

    Use a long socket to undo these "screws", you get better purchase
