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.

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.
