How can burned out license plate lights on a 2001 Ford Escape be replaced when there appears to be no way to remove the lens cover?

On My 205 Escape you have to pull the screws on the inner door Panel and change it from the inside Wrong. You don't have to remove the inner door panel. Look closely at the clear plastic license plate light cover. You'll see an arrow on the right side of the lense cover. Push the lens cover to the right, in the direction of the arrow and pull out. The lens assembly will pull out. Then twist the light bulb holder 1/3 turn clockwise. It will pull out. Then pull straight out on the bulb. Just push a new bulb in and replace.
