REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4

Vehicles covered by this manual utilize a license plate bulb which is covered by a housing which is mounted adjacent to the license plate using 1 or more retaining screws. On most vehicles covered by this manual, replacement is possible by reaching under the bumper, twisting and withdrawing the socket and bulb from the rear of the housing. If access is not possible or the housing is not equipped with a twist socket, the housing retaining screws should be removed and the housing should be lifted off to access the bulb. Remove the bulb from the socket and replace using a new part.
