i cant seem to find a diy with pics on how to take off the cover on the rear license plate frame bulbs. the bulbs turn on when i turn on the headlights at night. one of the bulbs in the rear had burned out so i need to replace it.

Don't take off the clear piece!! You go from the inside and undue the wires connecting to the clear piece.

The clear piece is not meant to come off due to weather sealing and what not. Go from the inside, trust me!

you get 2 4" CCFL tubes and use those instead of the ugly yellow halogen bulb =]

i changed my license plate bulb into the hyper white LED's like the ones in the new Lexus models. All i did was open the trunk and looked under where it's adjacent to the license plate and stuck my hand in there to remove the bulb and replace it.

Psst... why didn't you just open up your trunk? lol

I think you can remove the lens pretty easily by pushing it to the right, where it just snaps off and comes out.

yes, i hope we're on the same page here. I'm talking about the sedan, cuz i dunno how it works for the coupe. But i didnt even budge that clear plastic thing, all i did was open the trunk and look under it. I saw the openings and stuck my hand in there..... DONE!

mine is a coupe.

i wouldnt think i would need to remove the rear bumper to just replace a light bulb in the license plate area. so honda must have made it a bit more easier to replace.
