My '01 Taurus just failed inspection due to one of the license plate bulbs being out. How do I access the bulbs? Do I need to drop the trunk liner down? Tried searching on this topic, but nothing came back.

Hope this picture helps. They are above the trunk latch. Just follow the wires, twist the grey holder, and pop em out. Then it's as simple as pulling the blub straight out, and pushing a new bulb in. It's a 194 bulb.

Thanks snoopy! Very helpful pic there -- I assume the trunk liner just kind of snaps into place, so removing it is just a matter of pulling it off?

Ok, so I changed the bulbs.

Yep, the plastic fasteners just simply pull straight back from the trunk lid. Be careful when you do as the fasteners are somewhat fragile, and you can bend them a bit as you push them back in.

In all, a grand total of about 2 minutes work....lol.
