How do I replace the license plate bulbs?
Your license plate must be clearly visible at all times. License plate bulbs turn on when your parking lights or headlights are on, and illuminate the license plate. If one of the bulbs blows, you’ll need to replace it. Here’s how:
Open the trunk.
If your model has a lid liner, you’ll need to remove the clips holding the liner in place. There are five of these.
Locate the light assembly.
Squeeze the side tabs.
Remove the light assembly.
Remove the old bulb and install the new one.
Make sure the bulb works.
Replace the assembly.
Replace the trunk lid liner (if your car has one).
