replace a 2006 saturn vue license plate light
replace a 2006 saturn vue license plate light. the screws are not coming out,
used the star screw driver, but cant get the screws out to replace the light.
No information on license plate bulb change. Only has a list of everything else, how to change, but says "if lamp not listed take to dealer." What a rip-off
Make sure you are using the correct size screwdriver.
On my 2003 they are not screws just look like it try popping them out.
They are screws, with a Torx head. They are going into plastic, so more than likely the holes are stripped. You will need to put a knife blade or similar under the screw head to pry out while turning, but there isn't a lot of room. I know this from recent experience. Bulb holders are in a rubber grommet, so some wiggling is needed to get them out. Suggest shimming the hole with shrink tube when re-installing the screws. Plastic won't take a lot of torque.
