SOURCE: replacing bulbs marker light license plate light

***

Mine's a 2001, but I think 2002 is the same.
I found this site/question when searching for the answer today.
Now that I had to muddle through it on my own I thought it only fair that I spread the knowledge.

My 2001 has two license plate lights, one on either side of the plate mounting area.
There is a slot at the top of each light bezel that at first appeared to me to be where you might insert a screwdriver or hooked tool to pry/pull out the bezel.
This proved NOT to be the case.
If you forge ahead heavyhandedly in this direction you will risk breaking the lens.
If you look very carefully at the top of the slot you will find a tab that is VERY thin and thus hard to spot at first glance.
take a thin flat screwdriver and insert it gently ABOVE the tab.
Press down gently but firmly, and coax, or lightly pry the lens out.
Once you have it out, rotate the gray plastic piece directly behind the reflector portion of the lens about a 1/8 turn in a counter clockwise direction.
At this point you can access and change the push-in type "OS 12V W5W E1 2GL w0T" bulb.

To reassemble just reverse the directions.
When snugging the assembly back into the license plate area, first position the bottom and then tip the top into position until you feel/hear it click.

Done!

Celebrate your victory over your machine!

Peace,

Rob

SOURCE: how do i change my rear indicator bulb in my 04 beetle?

open rear hatch and look strait down on inside boot well. the plastic trim has access holes that pop out on either side just behind the lights. pop out the access cover on the side with burnt bulb, then reach inside that hole and you will fins a large plastic "wingnut", unscrew it<careful not to drop it or you'll have to take the whole boot apart to retrieve it> after removing wingnut carefully pop out lens from outside , replace bulb and reinstall after testing

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

SOURCE: How do I replace the rear turn signal light bulb

There are round access panels more or less behind each tail light in the trunk. There is a small slot at the edge that you can insert a wide blade screwdriver to pop the panel out. then look for the star shaped knob
unscrew it
Now it will be possible to remove the entire tail light by using a thin flat blade. A putty knife, especially a plastic one would be good. Being careful not to damage the paint, slip the blade under the lower part of the tail light lens and pry the tail light assembly out.

Once the assembly is out, both the turn signal and stop/rear lamp sockets are exposed. The connector can be removed by pushing in a little tab on the side and pulling the connector straight out. It may not be absolutely necessary to remove the connector if the wiring is long enough, but when the connector is removed, it is easier to remove the lamp socket.
hope i helped

How do you change the rear license plate light bulbs???


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.

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
