first you remove the actual license plate,then remove the 6 remaining screws that are on the silver plate that's behind the license plate!once u have done this>pop the trunk and take a few push in holders(i dont know the names of these>>they're black though)that hold the carpet on the top of the trunk lid.take out just enough so u can see the 2 screws that hold the license plate sidemarker lights on>.unscrew these also>.will only be two>one on left and one on right.once you have done this go back to the outside of the car where the license plate is and pull on the entire license plate assembly and it will come out just like that.once it's out you will see the little light bulb and u will see that now u have clearance to get to it and change/replace took me about 2 hours to figure this out on my own>i first thought it would be a 5 minute job,but it wasn' can be now that i know EXACTLY what to do next time.this has to help whomever has to change the license plate light bulb on a 97-99 Cadillac deville,maybe other models of cadillacs r like this also.

How do you replace a licence plate lamp on a 1989 Cadillac deVille?

This is an easy one, but.... I spent a good half an hour figuring it out. The license plate lamp requires no tools to replace. Above the license plate is a small bulb housing. At the back of the bulb housing is the bulb socket that locks into place. Simply turn the socket 90 degrees moving the socket clockwise as you're facing the rear of the car and wiggle it out. The bulb simply pulls out and the new one pushes in!
