OVERVIEW (TIME REQUIRED: < 1 minute)

I recently received part of my prize for winning Cruze of the Month, a pair of DiodeDynamic LED license plate lights. They make the light much whiter and clearer, and are LED so that's bonus bragging horsepower. They are the same lights the first gen uses, although our cars use a different housing.

TOOLS REQUIRED

A flathead screwdriver, or a flathead drill bit, or anything at all that you can pry with. A popsicle stick would work.

PARTS REQUIRED

One pair of Diode Dynamics LED license plate lights- HP3

PROCEDURE

1) Use a screwdriver or popsicle stick to pry the tab over and pop down the light.



2) Pull the housing down.


3) Twist the housing a quarter turn clockwise and pull the housing off.


4) Yank the bulb out.


5) Insert the LED bulb.


6) Put the housing back on.


7) Clip it in place.


8) Both sides are oriented identically. Enjoy your new lights.

LED on the right.

You may find that you have to spread the wire leads on the light a bit. The DD lights use a single wire bent over the form. That can make connection to the socket a bit of a hit-or-miss. OEM bulbs use a thinner wire bent into a "U" shape and are effectively "wider".
Mine plugged right in, but that's good information.
