Use a screwdriver in the recess on the plate light. Pry out the light unit. Release bulb from the contact spring. Install the bulb using a reversal of the removal procedure. Make the tension of the contact springs sufficient to hold the bulb firmly.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: change tag bulb 2000 focus

am not familiar with the early year Focus'. Look above the license plate, if the lens for the bulb has two screws, you need to remove them to access the bulb. On other models, open the trunk and look down where the license plate is, you should be able to see and access the bulb from there.

Very easy, 2 or 3 minutes.
Remove radiator grille. 2 plastic fittings on top, quarter turn and lift out grille.
Remove complete headlight. Simply lift out 2 L shape retaining pins. Disconnect lead. Ease out complete headlamp unit.
Remove back of headlamp unit to access bulbs. Disconnect lead from bulb while bulb still held by clip. Then release clip to remove bulb.
Reverse process to fit.

if you buy some of those "on tv only" lights that are bubble shaped and plastic, you can duct tape those onto your license plate area and click them on or off when needed.

SOURCE: license plate bulbs burnt out, need to install new

Look at the lens and you should see that one side of the lens will have a bigger gap between it and the plastic (I believe the gap should be on the right side). Take a flat screwdriver and gently pry on the left side pushing the housing to the right. If it doesn't budge, reverse the sides, but I'm pretty sure you should push it towards the right (passenger side) and it should pop out

2001 LeSabre - replace rear license light. The rear license plate lights do not light up the license at night. How do you get to them? What size bulb do you need?


kind of tricky, took me an hour to get it figured out, but you got to open the trunk and take out the 10 or so 10mm nuts sticking out of the backside of the lid, then the whole solid piece where the lights are on the back will slide off, then you can change the bulbs above the license plate and put it all back together, im cant remember off hand the bulb size, but your local auto parts store will have that info when you go to buy them

HOW TO CHANGE LICENSE PLATE BULB ON 2004 COROLLA LE


After looking for the answer to do the same I found two sites with the same 8 step instructions.
Here is one of the two URLS http://www.ehow.com/how_5028612_replace-license-plate-light-bulb.html
From what I see before tearing into it this appears to be the solution though I'll know tomorrow after following it.
Tools: 1 flathead screw driver, 1 phillips screw driver, 1 needle nose pliers
Overview of 8 steps
Must remove several liner clips then emergency trunk release handle to clear access then remove wiring to lamps, remove burnt bulb, replace bulb and reverse steps to put things back together. The steps tell where to gently squeeze clips or unlock clip screws and bulb with 1/4 turn twists and when to pry with flat head screw driver.
Remember standard rule: if it feels like it is being forced then stop and look.
