Lightbulb Need to change a light bulb

Hi all, i've done this job before but cant remember how
1997 mk1 55 s 3dr
The light bulbs that shine onto the licence plate on the rear

How do i get the lights off so that i can change the bulbs. When i undo the screws the holder thingy goes loose but i cant prise it out.

Do i remove the lens only or the holder?

cheers

To be fair mate its not gonna be rocket science, just take the screws out & jiggly juggly till the holder comes out, swap the lamp then re-fit it & tell us all how smart you are!

I know how silly this whole topic sounds hense the jokes

Would be worse if taken to police station or court coz i couldn't change alight bulb
