Hi All, one of the first things I do with every vehicle I purchase is upgrade the license plate lights to LED.... this is the first vehicle I have not been able to figure out how to do so. I removed the one screw holding the license plate light housing out and am able to pull down one side but unable to get to the actual bulb or remove the actual housing.

Has anyone had any luck? If anyone can figure this out I would greatly appreciate it. I fiddled around with it for 20 minutes.... Thanks!

LOL - some people just like the look of LED vs Incandescent. Others prefer the stupid low maintenance that LED's offer. You will basically never need to replace those bulbs for the life of ownership.

To the OP - did you check the owner's manual to see if there are any tips in there?

Good point - I did a quick glance and it looks like it has some basic instructions so I will give those a try and see if I have any luck! Thanks so much.

Did you manage to make the change? If so, how does it look? Pics?

I did end up getting it! It is my sisters vehicle so I didnt take any pictures but next time I am there I will grab a few and upload. It looks much better though.

I finally noticed the gross yellow hue of the stock license plate lights and I too want to change them out to LED.

I didn't see the bulbs listed in the manual (maybe I over looked them). Do you know what size they are?
