Ok those are called christmas trees they are a pain. there is a tool you can buy on the cheep to help you remove these and keep from destroying. but they sell those as well and they are cheap i usually don't worry about the clips i just replace them. the pliers will hold that plastic insert for the liscense plate

Help how do i change the license plate bulb on my 2004 corolla?


I just replaced my 2 bulbs an hour ago in my garage.
1. Pry off all the clips that hold the liner. I used a cloth covered spatula, so
as not to chip the paint, to pull out the liner a little bit and used my
index and middle finger to pull back the clip and the liner, very slowly to
prevent breakage. When all the clips are off, the liner will fall, no need
to remove the emergency release handle.
2. Press the tiny release lock that hold the wires in the socket and pull
out the wires, carefully.
3. Turn the socket 1/4 the the left carefully, while putting a little pressure
upward, then the socket will release.
4. Pull the bulb staight out and replace it.
5. Reverse the procedure and voila! A ton of money saved!!!!!!
MVC.

How to replace license plate lights


    Follow the Steps on how to replace license plate light on your car.

    1. Open the trunk and locate the trunk liner retainer clips.Use the Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the center plastic screw of the retainer clip about 1/4 turn, just enough to raise the head of the screw from the base of the clip. Pull the screw up, and lift the clip out of the liner. Use a flathead screwdriver to help pry it out. Remove enough of the clips to allow access to the license plate light sockets. Pull the liner back.

    2. Remove the emergency trunk release handle by popping off the top cover of the handle. Use the needle nose pliers to gently squeeze the prongs on the shaft, while removing the handle.

    3. Unplug the wire harness from the license plate light bulb socket the release clip on the side of the outlet.Twist the license plate light bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise, using the needle nose pliers again. Do not apply too much pressure to the pliers; you may damage the socket.

    4. Remove the bulb from the socket, and replace it with a new one.

    5. Replace the socket into the socket assembly, and plug the wire harness back in. Test the bulb by turning on the lights of the Corolla, then turn them off again.

    6. Replace the trunk emergency release handle, and replace the hood liner and the retainer clips. Remove the old bulb and tools, and close the trunk.

I just install an different engine in a 1999 3.2L Rodeo. the fork for the throw out bearing is hitting the pressure plate when the clutch in depress any help?


Sorry to tell you this-but you do not have the throw out bearing fork properly installed on throwout bearing. There is a spring clip on the fork that has to fit inside of throwout bearing's "groove"-I bet you the spring clip is on the BACKSIDE of throwout bearing! You will have to pull transmission back away from the engine to gain access to fix this. I do not envy the chore ahead of you-sorry!

Can't get rear license plate lamp covers off


The manual says switch off the lights and disconnect the battery. Then "Open trunk lid. Press and slide license plate light outward and remove". The photo shows that there is a clip on the side of the light away from the center, and a notch that fits the body on the side towards the center. So what you are doing is pushing the light holder towards the side of the car far enough to compress the clip and get the notch past the metal, then the inner edge of the light hold should lift out. To install, just put the notched end in first and the press the outer edge until the clip snaps into place.

Burned out license plate bulb


open trunk,

remove felt liner from rear of trunk, (liner directly behind rear lights in side trunk) should be 4 plastic Phillips head screws. Loosing screws, then slowly peel liner away. You will see 3 nuts on each side, removing these nuts will loosing the rear light lenses, so you can pull the lense away from the body from the out side to gain access to the license plate bulbs. Re-install in reverse order. While in there I would recommend replacing your brake light and reverse light bulb. Hey your already in there might as well do a little preventive maintance.

Licens plate fastener


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
