rear dome lights on bumper?

Anybody know what im talking about? theres two little dome type lights on the rear bumper that shine on the licence plate at night? well one of mine is burnt out and i figured i might change it, how do you go about changing it? I figured since its like a 2 dollar item that i can do it no problem, just need to figure out how to get at the bulb? anyone know how? thanks

they are real easy just lay under the rear bumper and look up they twist out of there and are an easy 5min fix to do both.

dang you guys make that too complicated!
the whole little housing pops out of the bumper. no need to be looking under it and all that jazz.

and go to your closest autoparts store and get a 194 bulb.

or, get yourself some white led's for a better look. thats what i did.
