The manual says switch off the lights and disconnect the battery. Then "Open trunk lid. Press and slide license plate light outward and remove". The photo shows that there is a clip on the side of the light away from the center, and a notch that fits the body on the side towards the center. So what you are doing is pushing the light holder towards the side of the car far enough to compress the clip and get the notch past the metal, then the inner edge of the light hold should lift out. To install, just put the notched end in first and the press the outer edge until the clip snaps into place.

How do I change the license plate bulb rear on a 2007 Kia Rio?


For the Kia Rio5 model, the lenses above the license plate pop out by using a flat-head screwdriver. The lamp and socket all comes out together... put in new bulb and pop lenses back in and you're good to go. No real tools required other than something to pry the lenses out.
