Ummm if there is a little valence right about the licence plate that have two screws that screw upwards... remove... pull light the valence down... and remove the two bulbs... and replace them.

Its easy really.

I just have a well trained Spider Monkey that does little things like that for me. Well worth the investment (you can train them to do your dishes too)

There's a horizontal strip of body coloured trim that runs above your rear license plate.... on the outside of the car.

If you bend down so your head is at license plate level and look up at that strip, you'll see there are two screws that hold it on.

Undo those screws, pull the piece of trim off and you can access the light.

Well, on my last trip to Peru, I stuffed a baby one in my pants...got through security and onto the plane with no issues. Damn, those little buggers have sharp teeth and claws! I think I have permanemt scars on my 'unit'(it must have thought that was a big, sturdy branch to swing from).
I did try to make it procreate once, but no matter how much water I poured on it, no more would sprout up...I just don't understand it. Someone did say something about it needing a 'mate' though...not quite sure what that's supposed to mean.

^^^ I've often wanted to freshen the look of my rear plate lights with some nice white LEDs. I'd love to see your pics.
