Look up into the housing over the plate. You should see two glass lenses, and screws holding them in. Unscrew screws, remove bulbs, clean socket with contact cleaner and refit bulbs or new bulbs after cleaning glass lense and reflectors on the inside surfaces as dust and water will have entered and clogged it up over time.
The lenses cover & the lenses housing snap in to place. There are plastic tabs on the sides of each. Directions: Remove the license plate light housing, and disconnect the 2P connector from the light. Remove the lens from the light, and then replace the bulb. Install the light in the reverse order of removal.
First look under when your license plate lights are and you will see 2 phllips headed screws remove those screws and the license plate light assembly will drop out of the bottom of the trunk, simply twist the blub to unlock it from the light housing pull the bulb straight out of the socket replace it with a new bulb and the installation is the reverse of the removal.
If you place the flate blade of a screwdriver to the right side of the light(s) housing. And push gently to the left the catch will release and the unit will drop out of the trunk lid. Twist the bulb 1/4 turn and remove. Just reverse the process to complete.
Open the trunk to eye level to see to make it easier to see. Applies to all 02-05 Devilles
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.
