There are 6 bolts that hold the rear trunk panel on the trunk itself:
4 behind the license plate on the outside of the trunk and two inside
the trunk panel trim. 1. Remove the license place from the DeVille rear trunk panel. 2. Remove the 4 bolts located below the license plate. 3. Remove the trunk panel (felt) trim inside the trunk. 4. There is a small bolt on each side of inside trunk panel (4mm I believe). Remove them. Each will have a rubber washer on them so you'll know you are removing the correct bolt. 5.
From the outside of the trunk, lift out the rear trunk panel. The
license plate light (and reverse lights) are removed by turning the
light assemblies counter clockwise.
