Installation Of LED License Plate Light
This is the part people usually dread the most. Don’t worry though, this led license plate light install is about as easy as it gets. On the AutoXperts scale of 1 - NOT FUN, this easily ranks at a 1. As a matter of fact, no tools are even required (although you could use a plastic trim removal tool if you would like).
Locate the single tab of the license plate light by simply reaching around to the underside of the vehicle bumper and feeling for the single tab of the factory housing. Once located, simply press in on the tab and push it up.
Now that the tab is released, use a finger to pry the housing toward you, completely removing the factory housing.
Remove the bulb socket from the factory housing by twisting the grey socket and pulling until it releases.
*The socket and housing are keyed and will only release and reinstall when aligned.
Remove the bulb from the bulb socket, connect the connector from the new housing to the bulb socket, and push the wire into the housing while reseating the bulb socket into the new housing.
Reseat the new housing back into the vehicle bumper, an audible “click” should be heard, letting you know it has been secured properly. Repeat the process on the other side. Enjoy the new upgraded look and brighter illumination to your license plate that these provide.
