tail light removal on 08 CLK350 coupe.

A tail-light bulb broke and the glass is rolling around in the lens.
M-B rep says:remove lens and shake out bulb.
Looking at the assembly, it seems that I would have to remove some of the inside covering (how??) and un-screw the lens, which it seems has 3 or 4 screws holding it. Are there more than 3 or 4 ? Is there more to it ?

The dealer would probably charge me for a 1/2 hour's work, or $70.
Is this something I could do myself? I'm 86, not too nimble anymore, and wonder if there are problems I should be aware about before I try to fix this by myself.
Thanks for any input..... JU
