1) Remove the two screws for each license plate light and unplug the harness

2) Take the plastic cover off and remove the rubber surrounding it. Clean the clear plastic in soapy water.

3) Cut your LED strips to the correct size (should be same length as the plastic cover). Test the strips to figure out the positive and negative terminals.

4) Another option (instead of using LED strips is to simply replace the halogen bulb with an LED one. Since LED’s are directional unlike halogen bulbs, I decided to use strips instead.

5) Connect male disconnects to the LED strips and plug them into the stock harness.

6) Re-attach the rubber to the plastic cover. I used a hot glue gun to keep the LED strips attached to the clear plastic. Finally, screw your new license plate lights back into your trunk lid.
