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

To remove the rear license plate lights, take your plastic prying tool, stick it on the inside of the housing, and just pop it down. This is an LED assembly, so you cannot swap out the bulbs. The entire assembly itself has to be unclipped from the back, and then you simply replace this with a new housing.

Put the new housing in place. This tab, you want to put it on the outside first. Then just pop the light back in.

The opposite side, the driver's side of the car, you want to pry from the outside edge. Pop this out. Unclip your harness. Reinstall your new light. Just press in, and this tab goes on the inside. You want to place it first, then just pop that back in.
