SOURCE: Replacing the license plate light

Their is a plastic lens covering the licence plate bulb. I can be removed by using a flat-tipped screwdriver covered by a shop towel (or tape) on the right side of the lens. It should pop off where you can access the bulb.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Replace license plate light 2005 Hyundai Accent

A slightly better set of instructions might help you. Mine is a 2003 Accent. You have to remove the access panel that covers the lamps and the wiper control. Remove the phillips screws along the bottom of the panel (closest to the floor of the trunk when the lid is closed). Then remove the two screws that hold the brackets onto which the two strings are linked which are used to raise the rear deck slightly when the trunk opens. Next, there is a small cover underneath the rear wiper (about 2 inches square) that you need to carefully pry off using a small flat head screw driver via the indents on the lower side of the plastic cover. Inside you will find a 10mm bolt; use a ratchet to remove the bolt. Next, using a small flat head screw driver, carefully pry the middle section of moulding between the panel you are removing and the molding that covers the top portion of the back glass. There are two clips at the base of each middle moulding piece closest to the panel you are removing. Once those pop free, grab the panel at the bottom and firmly but gently pull away from the car body to pop free the two retaining clips holding the moulding to the car body. Finally, use one hand to grasp the panel from the bottom and the other to help help slide the panel "up" towards the glass (top of the car). The panel's top is flanged, and must slide up and away from the lip on which it sits. With the panel removed, grasp the white socket that holds the bulb and with gentle pressure turn it counter clockwise about 40 degrees and then pull the socket out. The replacement bulb is a type 168. Reverse these instructions to assemble, making sure in the end to push all retaining clips back into place until you hear them "catch" and hold the panel firm;y against the car body so that you do not get vibration noise.

I can't see what you have but lets check a couple of things. If there is any screws visable on the outside of the lens then remove them. Once the cover is off then you should be able to see the bulb. Take the bulb between your thimb and four finger and push in gently and turn to the right and pull out. You would know the rest from there. If no screws outside then lets look in the trunk. You may have to remove some covering in the general area to see the bulb. Follow above directions. If nothing is there then the last place is under the bumper. Have a look and go from there. Let me know I we fixed it. The Raz

SOURCE: how do you replace license plate bulbs on 2002

open the trunk and on the inside of yout trunk lid you will see a gray plastic socket for each light.

push in and turn the socket counter clockwise. when you feel it come loose remove it from trunk lid.

if the black rubber ring does not come off with the socket pull it off and put it on the socket so you can see where to line up the holes when you re insert the socket.

pull out the old light bulb and insert the new one.

line up the notches on the socket with the holes on the trunk lid and re insert the socket.

push in and turn clockwise to lock into place.

note: be sure to wear gloves when doing this. there are screws coming through the inside of the trunk that hold the light cover onto the outside of the trunk. the points of these screws are on both sides of the socket that holds the light bulb. since these are older cars it is likely that these screws are rusty. wearing gloves will keep you from cutting your hand on a rusty screw if you happen to slip when trying to turn the socket.

Constantly replacing headlights

Do not tear thru anything please just go to the dealership and replace the headlights! The Hyundai's headlights burn so hot that any aftermarket headlights will burn out quite quickly! I have purchased many different headlight bulbs for my Hyundai including the ultrabright lights and those just burned. Went to the dealer and purchased two headlights from them for $21.00 and they installed them!!!! Have not had a problem since! (that was over a year ago)
