Hi. Remove the retaining screws from the license plate light assembly with a Phillips screwdriver. There are two screws on each side of the lens assembly.

Pull the light assembly cover down out of the way to gain access to the bulbs. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly and pull it straight out. Pull the bulb out of the socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket. Replace the bulb and socket inside the light assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.

Replace the assembly cover and secure it with the retaining screws. Tighten the screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Turn on the lights to test your new bulbs.
Take care

How to charge tag light


Vehicles: 2004 Buick LeSabre 3.8L SFI OHV 6-cylinder

From sylvania.com:
License plate light bulbs - 2 compatible tag light bulb types:
(1) 161
(2) 161LL (LL stands for "Long Life")
SYLVANIA Long Life miniature bulbs perform twice as long as any standard miniature bulb. Designed for durability, lower maintenance and greater safety.

These are available online, and also at every auto parts store:
http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_Long-Life-Incandescent-Mini-Bulb-Sylvania_5080167-P_1259_R'GRPLAMPAMS___

Since no maintenance manual covers this, do what mechanics do when maintenance manuals fail - get creative.

Unscrew or pry off the lens cover, pull out the License Plate's Type 161 bulb, and insert a new 161 or 161LL bulb, and replace the cover.

Test your installation by turning the ignition key to the "Accessory" position, which will turn on the running lights and the license plate light.

How do I replace license light bulbs in my 1995


I have a 2002 which is a little different body style but it may be the same process. You have to take the back plastic section that holds the license plate loose from the car. There are bolts that are inside the trunk that hold the plastic panel on. Mine are in the trunk lid. If your plastic panel, license plate, etc. goes up with the trunk lid they are in the lid. You need deep type sockets to reach the nuts, at least mine does.

kind of tricky, took me an hour to get it figured out, but you got to opend the trunk and take out the 10 or so 10mm nuts sticking out of the backside of the lid, then the whole solid piece where the lights are on the back will slide off, then you can change the bulbs above the license plate and put it all back together

Rear license plate lights burned out and can't remove or replace them. Screws won't back out of assembly. 1997 Buick LeSabre


If i remember correctly the entire rear light assembly must be remove in order to access these bulbs. This is true if the license plate is on the trunk. If this is the case then there are nuts on the inside of the trunk that must be removed.

Rear license plate does not work


My park avenue has star bit screws on both sides of the plate lights right at the top of the license plate holder. I just chaged them last week. I do not know what size the bit was and I am not sure your car is the same. My car looks just like the car in the picture just longer and a little bigger.
