Licens plate fastener

I have a clear rear license plate cover that I am trying to remove. The thing is that when I try to unscrew the screw it just turns. It seems to be glued to the fastener BEHIND the plate in the interior of the trunk. How do I get back there without destroying the trunk fasteners?? HELP!!

You should have an access point in the trunk. if the plate is mounted on the trunk wall yopu have to pull back the fabric to gain access. if it is mounted on the trunk lid there should be an access panel you can remove to gain entry to the little cubby. just use a pliers to hold the plastic isert and remove fasteners. this should do the trick...please rate thanks

How do I get to the license plate bulb for a 2004 nissan sentra


There are 2 bulbs above the license plate, each under a plastic cover. The covers are held in with 2 screws each. Just unscrew and remove the plastic covers and you should be able to access the bulbs.

Tail light bulb


Some manufactures incorporate a recess part on the screw so that they screw all the way through then turn any which way but won't fall out. If you have to remove the screws apply pressure to the point while unscrewing and the thread should pick up and wind out.

The fuse labeled REAR PARK LP 15A in the right instrument panel fuse box powers the rear park lamps, and the tag lamps. If your rear park lamps are working then you most likely need to replace the tag lamps (bulbs). Use the following procedure to replace the lamps.

To Remove:
  1. Remove the two mounting screws from the license plate lamp.
  2. Remove the license plate lamp from the rear bumper fascia.
  3. Remove the license plate lamp socket by turning it counterclockwise.
To Install:

Back door latch broke cant open back door where can i buy the part and the name of the part


I just bought the part last week for 61.76 from the dealership. It takes about two hours to unscrew the strap from the inside, remove trim from the inside starting at the top, sides and bottom. Remove the license plate from the outside of the hatch. Next remove the 8 bolts (10mm)and 3 white plastic tabs that snap on from the large black plate and move to the side (you don't need to disconnect the wires). From here you can reach around the rear window unit and open the door by moving the latch or pulling the cable. You should remove the 4 nuts that hold on the rear window assembly and move the to reach two nuts which holds the center portion of the trim piece you are trying to remove. There should be a plastic piece covering the cable and latch, it just pops off by pulling it straight out. There are three plastic tabs in the corners and one screw (lock for the hatch) that holds on the license plate assembly to the rear hatch along with two white plastic tabs which are located at the bottom two holes for license plate. These plastic tabs come in from the front. Use pliers to squeeze the together and push. You will need to disconnect the license plate lamp wire connector from the left side. The license plate assembly should drop away. Two screws hold on the latch, remove and replace and reverse proceedure.

License plate light replacement


The license plate lights are in the ledge above the license plate. 2 screws keep the lens cover in place. Remove the screws, and the cover comes off. Just pull the lamp out (wedge base) and replace.
