How To Replace Your License Plate Light Bulb

Replacing a license plate light bulb is a relatively easy task that you can do yourself with a few basic tools. Here are the steps involved:

Make sure to buy the correct type of bulb for your car. The type and wattage of the bulb are usually stamped on the housing.

Be careful not to touch the new bulb with your fingers, as the oils from your skin can shorten its lifespan.

Locate the license plate light. It is usually located on the bottom of the trunk or hatch, near the license plate.

 Insert the new bulb. Make sure that the new bulb is the same type as the old bulb.

Choose a spot that is near other cars, as this will deter thieves.

5. Secure the new bulb in place. If the bulb was held in place by a retaining clip, snap the clip back into place. If the bulb was screwed in, screw it in by hand until it is snug.
