Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Hi everyone, Sue here at 1A Auto, and today were going to show you how to change the license plate bulbs on an ‘03 Tundra. You need any parts for your vehicle, click on the link below and head on over to

A Phillips screwdriver removes the plate light assembly. Take that screw right out and place it to the side, and then you just grab onto the assembly and pull forward. See the lip, and then you've got your connector in the back here. They don't give you much of a harness to push on it, but right there I'm going to just really twist the assembly and turn it off.

So to reinstall it, you take your light assembly, and you line up the notches. Seat it and turn. Lock it in, reverse procedure, bring that tab down, and seat it. Take your screwdriver with the Phillips screw on it, line it up, and lock it down.
