    Default Changing the back registration plate light bulb...

    The light that shines on your reg plate at the back, both bulbs have gone and ive been told by the Police to get them sorted, ive bought the bulbs but how do you open the plastic covers to put in new bulbs? is it via the boot? ive never done it before so help would be appreciated...thanks.

    You have to take the bumper off mate and go in through the back, takes about 3 hrs to do










    Only joking, look under where your reg is, lights are there and you will see some clips, push them in, the glass comes out and then the bulbs twist out the holders

    Ive been pushing them in mate and nothing happens, there seems to be a rusty screw on either side of them keeping them in but they wont untighten.

    Cant you see a small flap / clip on the clear lenses .... nothing to do with the screws, think there to hold the bumper to the car (if its the same ones )

    L11marc, what car do you have? for my signum it wasnt the bulbs that were gone, but when i opened them up ( with a screwdriver on the rusty screw - soon to be replaced with stainless ) it was the conections that has corroded and needed a clean with a green scoury pad hope this helps when the bulbe were out I opened and closed the boot like 20 times, and they would come back on....try this...
