Hi,

Has anybody been able to remove the license plate light bulb cover on a 2017/18? I've tried prying it off with a flat head screw driver (placing it between the plastic housing and the black rubber), but have not had any luck.

Is there a trick to it?

Thanks in advance for any advice

Forefinger and thumb - pinch it. Hard. Then pull it downwards with a bit of a wriggle. Be careful, there's this soft gasket - tends to fall off

Replaced my bulbs with success with this guide! Without I wouldn't dare to push the cover out.
I went for 5000K Xenonwhite look, 2.28W with canbus function.
Very pleased, more nice looking now compared to ordinary bulbs.
