license plate lights

I wanted to replace the license plate bulbs with some LED lights, but I was unable to completely remove the plastic housing. For some reason, the plastic housing seemed a little too big for the hole, and so I was unable to completely pull the whole thing out. Has anyone done this mod, or know how to replace the license plate bulb? Thanks for any input.

They do not come all the way out, they only come out slightly. You have to pop them out from the outside as much as you can, then peel back the plastic/carpeting on the underside of the trunk. You have to stick your hand up through there so u can get up where the lights go into the little plastic housing. Then if u squeeze the plactic housing itself together....the lightbulb should pop out. Be patient, it takes some time, but once u fool around with it you will know what i am talking about and it will be easy as hell.

If you just want to change the bulb, then yes ou need to do it from the inside.
After removing the trunk lid liner, just squeze the clear plastic tabs and the bulb housing should pop out.

What LED's do you have?
The housing is setup to have the side of the bulb shining outwards. If you have a regular front emitting LED, it wouldn't seem bright at all. You need a side emitting one.

I just had mine replaced with regular xenon white 194/168 bulb.
