You dont need to do all of that...All you need to do is take out all the philips head screw taps that are holding the black carpet to the trunk lid. Then you will see the two bulbs holder that just twist out of their sockets and there are the bulbs...You dont need to unscrew any molding or license plate me i did it myself and if you put them in and they dont work "The bulbs" than they are in wrong haha....just take them out and turn them around.
