2007 Ford Expedition Rear Door License Plate Light Housing

I would like to know how to install the new plastic chrome trim piece that holds the license plate lights and the rear window latch button on the rear door of a 2007 For Expedition EL Limited. I am guessing that I need to remove the inside door panel, but I am not sure how to do that.

    Where do you get this piece, anyway? Mine just got knocked off by a tree limb.

There's no need to take the whole back panel off to do it, the light cover on the bulb twists out, and it might take some elbow grease to twist it, then the bulb is easy to change.

Good luck,
Eitan.

SOURCE: Rear license plate lights not working.

Have you checked to see if you have power to the bulbs?A cheap test probe/light will tell you wether its a power supply issue or wether the problem is at the lights.Usualy your problem is simply blown bulb/s.Have you replaced it/them to check?Good luck with it and if you need more let me know

Try turning the socket that holds the bulb to the left and pull it out to get to the bulb some times these get so hot that they start to melt so it might be hard to turn

Take a thin blade screw driver and gently pry between the rubber seal and the metal and pop the light out, replaced the bulb and pop the light back in. works fine.

SOURCE: License plate lights do not work.

The licence plate lights are in the same line as your tail light wiring assembly. I assume your tail lights are working or you would have got a ticket for that. The wire is either cut, broken or unhooked from the tail light wires (which usually are brown). If you can not find the problem, you can always run a new wire to the tail light wire from your licence plate wire. Then they should work.
Your other problem is that the license plate ground is rusty & not grounding, which would also not let them work, so you should probably check that first. Rick

Accessing the rear hatch brake light on a 1999 Ford Expedition


There should be 2 screws holding the lenses on for the hatch light, remove those and cover comes off. The plate lights, access them under the rear bumper, they twist and pull out, then just pull the bulb out the connector. The running board light, under board, which will take the light assembly out, or a small flat head screwdriver, pop the lens off the top of board.

I broke the latch from the handle of my 2003 Toyota Sequoia. First how do I go about opening the rear hatch before I replace it. Then how can I go about replacing it?


It will be about $200-280 at the dealer, they know all about this problem on the Sequoia.

If you want to do it yourself, it will take about 1.5 hours and some patience.

Depending on the level of corrosion in the back of your window area, the part number you need to order is the handle assy rear door. If you have a big problem, you may need the cable also:

toyotapartscheap.com (Mossey Toyota)
Parts:
1. Lock sub Assy - 69301 0C010 (($99)
2. Handle Assy Rear Door - 69090 08010 ($70)
3. Cable - 64680 0C010 ($24) .

The design is the same from 01-05 and is common to break after time. A poor design on an otherwise excellent truck.

If you want to DIY - visit Tundra Solutions.com and read up on the problem:

First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-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.
