How do I replace a license plate light bulb?

Your car has two small bulbs that light up the license plate for visibility (this is a legal requirement in most areas). Like other bulbs on your car, they’ll eventually burn out and need to be replaced. However, they should last for a very long time.

Honda does not recommend replacing your license plate bulbs on your own. Only an experienced mechanic should do this.
