Ok if you take a look at the light, you'll see that it's built into this black housing/bracket thing. That's just clipped onto the bumper so push that towards the front of the car, and the entire assembly should come off. You could use a flathead screwdriver and push the light off that way, but be careful not to damage anything. From there it's a matter of unplugging and removing the cover to access the bulb.

Shop manuals are roamin around here too....although I'd think this wouldn't be that hard although sometimes the little things can be tricky if you're not very mechanically inclined

@ thread....are you serious? If you'd go outside and look at it, I'm sure you could figure it out.

Idea for next thread: Request for DIY License Plate Removal
