Best Answer

There are two license plate bulbs on the 2000 Sonata. They are housed individually. The housing itself releases easily enough. Grip the housing with your thumb and fore finger, thumb on the right hand side of the housing, squeeze the clip under the thumb and pull down the housing. It does not come out very far. The cables are taped to the bumber of the car, you may need to reach up behind the bumper and find the tape and cut it, taking care not to cut the wires. Once you have released the cables, the housing should come out sufficiently for you to grip the bulb connecter. Holding it, turn the housing clockwise about 45 degrees and pull it off the bulb connector. It is all very stiff and difficlut to access, but it is possible, I have replaced one and it does work.
