How Do You Replace Rear Number Plate Bulb?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

One of my rear number plate bulbs has gone (year 2001 car), how do you access it? I got as far as removing the 4 nuts from inside, taking off the outer housing andexposing the clear bulb cover, but how do you get that bit off? I can see any clips anywhere. What a mission for just a bulb! :)

The whole perspex holder itself should slide quite easily to one side, then they should come forward at an angle so you don't break the connector at the back. I'll see if I've got a pic.

Looks like it will just prise out. I found it easier pushing to one side first. Guess it just releases some of the pressure on the clip.

Then the bulb just twists out like any other batten holder.
