2012 Elantra Limited - License Plate Lamp Cover
This should be easy to do, and is even explained in the owner's manual. I'm trying to remove the clear-colored license plate lamp cover to replace a bulb that has a loose connection, and check the actual contacts to be able to spray clean them with electrical contact cleaner. My bulb keeps going out and a quick knock on the trunk lid will make it come back on so I know it is connection related but for the life of me I cannot seem to get the dang cover to pop off. I've tried several times with small tools but it seems like it would take too much force to remove and I'm fearful of breaking the attachment tabs. Am I doing something obviously wrong here? I'm assuming so, but what I don't know.
