kind of tricky, took me an hour to get it figured out, but you got to opend the trunk and take out the 10 or so 10mm nuts sticking out of the backside of the lid, then the whole solid piece where the lights are on the back will slide off, then you can change the bulbs above the license plate and put it all back together

SOURCE: License plate bulb replacement on a 2002 Buick

Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.

The entire tail/backup lens assembly has to be removed from the trunk lid as shown in the drawing attached. There will most likely be some nut's or clip's on the assemblies mounting pins on the inside of the trunk lid.

  1. Disconnect the tail/back up lamp harness connector from the body wiring harness.
  2. Remove the tail/back up lamp assembly from the rear compartment lid.
  3. While supporting the tail/back up lamp assembly, unplug the tail/back up lamp harness grommet from the rear compartment lid and remove the tail/back up lamp from the vehicle.
  4. Remove the license plate lamp bulb from the lamp housing.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

How to replace license plate bulb on 2004 Buick Century


You have to take out the entire back lights, Inside the trunk pull back the material and unscrew those plastic lugs. (Some years have lights on trunk when opened or under) But in my 01 the lights come up with the trunk. Remove those lugs. Take off the entire rear light assembly. You'll have easy access to the License plate bulbs. Sounds complicated but it takes a total of 10 minutes total. While your at it wash the area where the lights were on. A coat of wax left on will keep the water, moisture from rotting the surfaces. Make sure your seals are good and re-install. If the bolts are rusting put a small amount of grease on them. (Prior to re-installation of course)

On most GM cars, SUV's, and light duty trucks, the license plate light bulbs are held in place by 2 screws...located on each side of the plastic lens...remove these 2 screws then wiggle the entire assembly out so you can view and replace the bulbs...Again most GM cars have 2 bulbs also...Hope this helps.

How to replace license plate light on a 2002 buick lesabre


Hi. Remove the retaining screws from the license plate light assembly with a Phillips screwdriver. There are two screws on each side of the lens assembly.

Pull the light assembly cover down out of the way to gain access to the bulbs. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly and pull it straight out. Pull the bulb out of the socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket. Replace the bulb and socket inside the light assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.

Replace the assembly cover and secure it with the retaining screws. Tighten the screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Turn on the lights to test your new bulbs.
Take care

How do I replace license light bulbs in my 1995


I have a 2002 which is a little different body style but it may be the same process. You have to take the back plastic section that holds the license plate loose from the car. There are bolts that are inside the trunk that hold the plastic panel on. Mine are in the trunk lid. If your plastic panel, license plate, etc. goes up with the trunk lid they are in the lid. You need deep type sockets to reach the nuts, at least mine does.

I have a 2000 buick century back up lights aren't working, changed bulbs and notice that the license lights aren't working either. Checked the taillamp fuse it's okay. Is this the right fuse?


The back up lights may be on a separate fuse from the tail lights. The license plate light should be fused with the tail lights though. The bulbs are good on the license plate light too? Did you have the ignition switch on when you were checking the back up lights? It could be the neutral safety switch is out of adjustment or the switch is bad. Does the car start OK in both neutral and park? If so the switch adjustment is probably good, but the back-up light portion of the switch could be bad. That switch is located on top of the transmission, about right under the master cylinder for the brakes. You have to disconnect the shift cable lever from the trans to get the switch off.
