1999 Buick: the light bulbs for the license plate

This answer was rated:

OK - stupid woman question.. 1999 Buick Century

How do I change the light bulbs for the license plate? Do I have to remove the "applique" just for those? I swear it isn't in the manual!!! OR since both are out, is it a fuse? What other things are they on circuit with? (Jeez am I stupid or what??)
Most likely the bulbs are bad. These bulbs run on the same circuit as all of the parking lamps, of if they are coming on then the license plate lights should also be on. You do have to remove the rear applique to replace the bulbs, should not be too hard.
