Question about 2007 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer EL
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.
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.

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

in most cases you have to open the rear tailgate remove the panel and then you have access to everything in the door

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.

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
