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.

How do I replace a license plate bulb on 04 cadillac srx


Replacing the license plate bulbs was simple. It took all of 20 minutes. Don't let the directions fool you. Remove the lift gate screw.Use a 10mm deep socket to remove the 5 nuts.(you can see the nuts on long bolts).Get a screw driver and gently pry the panel up. You can see everything right in front of you. Easy job if you have ANY kind of common sense.

License plate light 2003 Deville


You have to pry underneath the outer left plastic edge of the light with a small precision flat screwdriver to hit the tab thing on the left inside and push towards the right, then pull light housing outwards. You can see the tab through the clear lens. if you have a license plate frame, you will need to remove that first.
