Hmm, I'll give this a second attempt, right now, my LEDs are taped over the stock ones and disabled. It's perfectly fine but I would prefer it inside the housing. Where exactly do you cut the housing? I tried heating it up with a heat gun and using a soldering iron blade to cut it open but the plastic seems quite hard to cut.

You need to remove the interior panel(s) on the back of the tailgate itself (just held on with clips). Then you'll see the bulbs which twist in from the inside tailgate area.

The lights cannot be removed from outside of the car, only from the inside. Just pry the panels off with a flathead screwdriver. Its alot of work

The LED is integrated as part of an assembly, therefore you need to replace the assembly. Notice the part number is for the assembly, not in particular for the LED bulb.

I think CJ22 found this out and managed to replace the LED but in there but it is not that easy.

Just merged 4 threads into 1, all concerning license plate lights.

FYI, you can Google "site:clublexus.com <INSERT SEARCH QUERY>" if CL's built-in search function isn't giving you good results.
