your going to remove the entire trunk lid assembly from the vehicle. If you open the trunk and look from the inside you should either see black plastic wing nuts or 10mm nuts holding the assembly to the trunk. There will be approximately 10 of them that will need to be removed. Once they are removed the lens assembly will pop away from the trunk lid. The license bulbs can then be replaced. I usually replace all six taillight/license bulbs whenever I have one of these apart. Its the same bulb for all six lights.
I just replaced my 2 bulbs an hour ago in my garage. 1. Pry off all the clips that hold the liner. I used a cloth covered spatula, so as not to chip the paint, to pull out the liner a little bit and used my index and middle finger to pull back the clip and the liner, very slowly to prevent breakage. When all the clips are off, the liner will fall, no need to remove the emergency release handle. 2. Press the tiny release lock that hold the wires in the socket and pull out the wires, carefully. 3. Turn the socket 1/4 the the left carefully, while putting a little pressure upward, then the socket will release. 4. Pull the bulb staight out and replace it. 5. Reverse the procedure and voila! A ton of money saved!!!!!! MVC.
the Steps on how to replace license plate light on your car.
Open the trunk and locate the trunk liner retainer clips.Use the
Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the center plastic screw of the
retainer clip about 1/4 turn, just enough to raise the head of the
screw from the base of the clip. Pull the screw up, and lift the
clip out of the liner. Use a flathead screwdriver to help pry it
out. Remove enough of the clips to allow access to the license plate
light sockets. Pull the liner back.
Remove the emergency trunk release handle by popping off the top
cover of the handle. Use the needle nose pliers to gently squeeze
the prongs on the shaft, while removing the handle.
Unplug the wire harness from the license plate light bulb socket the
release clip on the side of the outlet.Twist the license plate light
bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise, using the needle nose pliers
again. Do not apply too much pressure to the pliers; you may damage
Remove the bulb from the socket, and replace it with a new one.
Replace the socket into the socket assembly, and plug the wire
harness back in. Test the bulb by turning on the lights of the
Corolla, then turn them off again.
Replace the trunk emergency release handle, and replace the hood
liner and the retainer clips. Remove the old bulb and tools, and
close the trunk.
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.
YOU HAVE TO OPEN THE TRUNK LID REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC COVER FOR THE TRUNK LID LATCH.REMOVE THE LICENSE PLATE LIGHT HOUSING FROM THE TRUNK LID.REMOVE THE BULB SOCKET FROM THE LICENSE PLATE LIGHT HOUSING.TO REMOVE BULB FROM THE SOCKET SIMPLY PULL IT STRAIGHT OUT OF THE SOCKET.
You should have two license plate lights, right above the license plate. If you remove the two screws that hold the one you want to change in, the entire fixture will drop down(best to do this with the trunk open). Remove the metal clip plate that covers the bulb. The bulb SHOULD simply pull directly out.
Hope this helps you.
open the trunk and remove the back panel in the trunk could be a couple of clips or a few screws holding the panel on one you remove the panel you should have easy access to the bulb just twist and remove. or on some avalons you need to pry the lens off the light to replace it then the lens will click back into place with a little push
