STEP-BY-STEP, HOW TO REMOVE INTERIOR TAILGATE PANEL

2005 Cadillac STS • 83,000 miles

I need to replace license plate lamps and my understanding is that interior tailgate panel has to be removed and I want to do so without breaking same.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

1. Open the hatch and stand under it.
2. Remove pull handle from the inside of the hatch (2 screws under pop panels).
3. Starting in the lower corners, gently pry the entire interior panel from the hatch,
and leave it hanging from the wiper area near the glass.
4. Grasp the bulb housing and twist to the left while pressing inward.
5. Replace with a 1156 bulb.
