Default license plate lights - replacement for 2004

ill admit it, im lazy. as a consequence, im wasting your time. for that i apologise. if you feel as if you cant waste your time reading and (optional) responding, then please, dont. i got pulled over a couple night ago for not having license plate lights. i never knew about them, so im guessing theyre burned out. well, how do i replace them? i took a cursory glance earlier today and i didnt see any bulbs, but i saw where i thought bulbs could go. so what kind of bulbs go in there and how do they do in? anyone know right off-hand?

again, im sure its in my owners manual, but i thought if you knew off the top of your head . . .

j, you're going to have to lie down and look up at the 2 license plate light assemblies. Take a 10 mm socket & loosen the light fixtures, remove fasteners then feed light fixtures out through the openings. It'* a pita. That is the only way to do it.

as far as what bulb to put in, Autozone should be able to tell you what it is... it should be in their computer system. or, if there isnt' an autozone by you try any other autoparts...
