This may be of help to you...it's not specific to the Torrent, but the concept is similar on many cars: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=UqxUhwDxCxk -------OR-------- Try this..not the Torrent, but since it's the Pontiac Vibe, it's likely the same procedure: http://www.ehow.com/how_7226020_replace-plate_s-light-pontiac- vibe.html

I have an 07. What if the bolts are rusted and can't get them out?

@Jeni, I had to drill the plastic piece off after trying many things to remove the screws. When they rust over they bond with the clear plastic. I am currently trying to find a new way to cover the bulbs since the clear covers are no longer available.
