Should be standard equipment for this car. I've seen pics on the internet with it on there. If you own one, just look at the back plate at dusk or at night. Or simply, lie on your back and look up under it and look for the small bulbs...there're small, but should be able to be spotted.

All cars sold in North America and Europe for the last 70 years at least have requited a rear license plate light. There has to be at least one lamp there. Chances are it takes a bulb number 194, as almost all cars do. I believe you have 2 bulbs on that car, in 2 separate housings. When you look above the plate, you will see a clear plastic lens, and the bulb is behind that. On most cars you can get to the rear of the housing, and twist the socket then pull it out to change the bulb. On some cars you have to undo the retaining screws to drop the housing in order to get to the bulb.


OK...I thought it was required by the Fed Govt to have them on ALL cars, but wasn't 100% sure ..Glad you confirmed that Michael. Probably a State and Local Police requirement they (and the red light cameras) can see your plate#'s and meet and exceed the ticket quota requirements...LOL!

Actually, the requirement predates red light cameras, radar, and almost every other form of electronic surveillance. In many places, the law states that only one tail lamp is required, but if all lights must be operational if installed, but the real license must be illuminated when the tail lamps are on. This has been the case for a very long time indeed, almost back to the beginning of license plates.
