    license plate lite is in the trunk lid; not the body of the car.
    I need to replace the light bulbs

    no,I did not understand. now I see the two on bith sides. I did not know that the

    carpet cover needed to come off before the rest of the #10 mm nuts could be seen. now I understand how the whole light assembly comes off so that you can get at the bulbs. still working on it; but this looks like a good fix and response on your part. it all makes sense now. will rate after I get it done. thanks
