This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the "new" Type 312 (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015) Fiat 500 hatchback car in changing a burnt out LED license plate light bulb assembly in the tailgate door.

Owners of other Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM vehicles such as the 4C, Giulia, 200, 300, Town & Country, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, Compass, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Renegade, Cherokee, Patriot, 1500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement LED light bulb assemblies with their part number are as follows: Left Side # 68212035AA and Right Side # 68212034AA.

The only tool needed to replace the bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver.

Light Housing Disconnected
Press in the small black plastic release tab on the outer edge of the license plate light bulb housing with the small flathead screwdriver.

Pull the housing out of the tailgate door.

Gently pry back the retaining clips on either side of the electrical connector before sliding the power plug straight out of its socket.

(On the older Fiat 500 models, you may need to cut the wires on the old housing in order to install the newer style license plate light assembly.)
