License Plate Bulb
 
Probably a stupid question, but is there a secret in changing this. I took off the flip down cover over the light, but the bulb is kinda hard to reach with my hands, is there something im missing doing, i dont want to damage anything. Hence coming on here and asking all you intelligent people :)

Needle nose pliers, wiggle it and have a little patience and you will get it.

When I put my led bulbs in, I used two small flat blade screw drivers to pry the bulbs out-with patience.

ive yet to replace my dull plate bulbs- its just everytime i buy some LEDs or etc they light up my rear end- as in spot light status- thats not what i want at all. clear white light yes, but not no superman blueish hyperwhite lighting up the next drivers face.

id like to get a calm white light. until then boring bulbs out back is what itll be.:eek:
