Ducato Number plate bulb replacement

Hi, I can see where this has been asked before but not answered. Can any one tell me how to replace the bulbs in the number plate on a 2008 Ducato?

I just can't figure it out and hopefully do not have to remove the door lining on inside.
Thanks

Hi Southward. The lamp units are just a snap fit into the door metalwork. Carefully pry them out with a small screwdriver from one side and change the bulbs, which are tubular "festoon" types. This is is in the owner's manual, which you should be able to find online as a pdf.

Proper way is to remove rear door card, and they then pop out, you’ll probably find the loom will break in time if not done so already, as the wires are rubbish

....and the factory lining shatters into lethal plastic shards if you tear it off beastmode.
