How to repair or replace a number plate light?

Repair of the number plate light includes cleaning of oxidized contacts. Moreover, broken wires, switches, light bulbs and other number plate lighting elements can be replaced. You can replace number plate lights on your own. For this use the following algorithm:

  1. Wipe the lense and surrounding surface with a clean cloth in order to avoid dust ingress into component.
  2. Stop voltage supply from the battery.
  3. Take the lamp out of its seat. The demounting method differs for different car models and depends on design features. Sometimes you need to unscrew fixation bolts from the outer side, sometimes you need to partially remove trimming of the luggage compartment and unscrew fixation bolts inside in order to gain access to the component.
  4. Disconnect wires from the socket and remove the component.
  5. Remove the lens and take the defective light bulb out.
  6. Install a new component and return the lens to its place. Apply silicone hermetic to it beforehand if necessary.
  7. Connect wires to the component and secure it on the car. Reconnect the negative terminal to the battery.

Replacement of light bulbs should be performed on both sides to achieve uniform lighting of the number plate. Use only those light bulbs which have power and size allowed by your car manufacturer. This information is specified in a car manual.

There are certain details which should be followed when replacing light bulbs. For one, halogen lamps must not be held by bare hands because it leads to uneven envelope heating and quick component breakdown. It is recommended to use gloves or lint-free wipes when replacing light bulbs. LED lights have electric polarity, so after their installation check how lighting works and if it doesn’t, turn the lamp by 180°.

In case number plate light defect is due to broken wires or sockets, repair works should be entrusted to service station specialists.
