Accessing License plate lights on hatch
Does anyone know how to access the license plate light bulbs on a '13 hatch?

I have LED bulbs that I want to put in there but I have no clue how to get in there. (Im hoping it doesn't involve removing the door panel)

I have seen people remove the housing from the outside of the car but it is not working.

Check your owners manual.

I have tried what the manual says push the housing to the left then pull forward but they are ridiculously sealed on. Im going to try spraying some wd40 around the edge see if it budges

I got it done. There is some sticky residue around the egde that makes it complicated to remove with your finger. (Unless you have hulk hands) I used a flat head to push it and it came off.

It looks good but kind of bright though. Police won't have any troubles seeing my plates.
