Number plate light

Hi folks...

Alfa 145 Cloverleaf, 1998 - need to replace a number plate light but can't see any obvious way of dropping them out... don't want to scratch the paint with a screwdriver before I know what to be moving.

Theres the clear plastic lense and the black plastic surround - do they both come out together? Or do I have to push them from behind?

Obviously it's the sort of thing I'll manage anyway, but as you lot are likely to have done this before I hoped you could make it slightly easier

Andy - I think mine used to fall out regularly, so yes they push down from the top. Can you nip it between your fingers and wiggle it (just a little bit)? Can you reach up behind the back of the bumper ?? Have you looked in the manual??

As far as I remember they're just clipped in, so a flat blade screwdriver inserted gently on one side should enable it to pop out.

Lense and surrond are all one piece. You can simply remove it by hand, applying pressure to surround and sliding it to right of car (same direction for either light) then pull gently on left side of surrond.
hope this makes sense.
Bulb = 5watt all glass - no prongs

failing this you could use the screwdriver but i always manage to break things with them.
