How do I replace the license plate lights?


I have a 2008 Equinox and it was a hassle to do on mine. The manual talks about removing 2 screws from the outside to remove the cover on each bulb. I was unable to get the old bulbs out. I then removed the plastic molding from the inside and the light sockets twist and pull out. The bulbs are easy to remove and replace then. The plastic panel inside just snaps out at several places. I had to loosen the back wiper motor
to get to one of them.

How do i change the parking light bulb on a 2003 park avenue?


The entire licence plate and tail light assembly needs to be removed, then access to the bulbs is easy.

1. Pop the plastic snaps that hold the carpet to the trunk lid in order to see the studs that hold the assembly to the trunk lid.
2. Use a 10mm deep socket to remove the 7 nuts (leave the ones that hold the lock assembly alone)
3. Wiggle the assembly free from the trunk lid, being careful not to damage the wires it will be dangling from.
4. Replace the bulbs (if only one is burnt out, replace the pair while you've got it apart, using long-life bulbs)
5. Put it back together (if the outside edge studs had plastic tips on them, put them back and press the plastic snaps back in to hold the carpet up.

My tail light is out over the license plate on my 1993 buick park avenue. How do I get to it to change it?


There will be 6-10 retainers (sometimes they are 10mm nuts and sometimes they are plastic speed nuts) holding the whole lens assembly to the trunk lid. Once those are removed you will be able to remove the lens assembly and access the bulb. There are six bulbs all together, two for the license place and four tail lights (not including the reverse lights) and they are part number 194. I usually recommend replacing all six while you have the lens removed from the trunk.

Back door latch broke cant open back door where can i buy the part and the name of the part


I just bought the part last week for 61.76 from the dealership. It takes about two hours to unscrew the strap from the inside, remove trim from the inside starting at the top, sides and bottom. Remove the license plate from the outside of the hatch. Next remove the 8 bolts (10mm)and 3 white plastic tabs that snap on from the large black plate and move to the side (you don't need to disconnect the wires). From here you can reach around the rear window unit and open the door by moving the latch or pulling the cable. You should remove the 4 nuts that hold on the rear window assembly and move the to reach two nuts which holds the center portion of the trim piece you are trying to remove. There should be a plastic piece covering the cable and latch, it just pops off by pulling it straight out. There are three plastic tabs in the corners and one screw (lock for the hatch) that holds on the license plate assembly to the rear hatch along with two white plastic tabs which are located at the bottom two holes for license plate. These plastic tabs come in from the front. Use pliers to squeeze the together and push. You will need to disconnect the license plate lamp wire connector from the left side. The license plate assembly should drop away. Two screws hold on the latch, remove and replace and reverse proceedure.
