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

We're going to replace the plate light bulbs. There's a little tab right here, you're going to use your finger. Push in on the tab, and then this slides down. You can pull this out. You can twist right here. You're going to take the light bulb with you hand, pull straight down.

To reinstall, you're going to line the light bulb up, push in. Take the lens, put back in, screw to the right to tighten. You're going to push up, lock it in place.
