All you have to do is reach up underneath the rear bumper, grab the light socket and turn a quarter turn counter-clock wise and pull the socket out of the housing. Then firmly grab the light bulb and pull straight out. Just reverse these directions for replacement.

    well, I don't know about all of them, but I can't reach up under it. There is a type of guard there that won't allow that. That's why I looked it up. I wondered if the mount on the outside could be removed. But I guess I will try to get to it from underneath somehow.

License plate light out on my `04 gmc envoy,how do i replace it?

Has 2 screws for the cover, take them out and replace the bulb/s. Might check the seal that seals the entire license plate panel, it's black. Common problem is that this seal comes folded under from the factory and allows water into the bulb area.

License Plate Lights

Probably not... For some reason license plate light wiring and sockets are VERY prone to corrosion. Make sure to check the light sockets and try to get to the wiring close to them, your problem is more than likely very close to the lights.
