Here are the items you'll need for this repair: replacement bulbs, and gloves.

Underneath the bumper, on either side of the license plate bracket, we have our license plate light sockets. Quarter turn counterclockwise and they pop out. This bulb pops out of the socket.

New one pops right in. We reinstall our bulb socket into the back of our license plate light cover and a quarter turn clockwise locks it into place.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
