License Plate Bulb Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've been changing all the horrible yellow factory bulbs on my car and I was swapping the bulbs out and I've encountered a problem that I can't fix

Basically on the actual fixture itself it's held in by a metal spring which releases the socket so you have access to the bulb.

Somehow as I was trying to release the fixture from the hole I've managed to knock the spring out of its position at my it's catching on the inside of the hole thus meaning the fixture won't prise free and allow me to change the bulb

If anyone knows how to solve this then please let me know as it's bugging the hell out of me as I have one white bulb and one horrible yellow one :/

Thank you

It happened to mine, the metal spring had bent funny and was stuck. I managed to prise it out with some thin pliers and bend it back into position.
