Question about 2004 Cadillac Deville
How do I replace the license plate light bulb?
I just replaced the license plate lamps on my 2004 Deville DTS.
Lamp is PC195. Lamp PC168 will also work, (it was in my car for the last two years), but it is a brighter bulb than needed.
You pop out the lamp holders by pushing (sliding)the right side towards the left. That little push will unhook plastic tabs from the sheet metal and the right side of the lamp holder will release from the trunk. See the attached photo.
To push the lamp holder, I used a narrow putty knife covered with masking tape. A screwdriver will work as well. The masking tape protects the paint from scratches.

the Steps on how to replace license plate light on your car.
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.
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.
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
Remove the bulb from the socket, and replace it with a new one.
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.
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.
