just in case anyone is wondering, the factory ford lamp kit - 2 lens assemblies, with factory style bulbs is part # YS4Z-13550-A . This is good for those that have a corrosion issue or have broken lenses. About $30. Also comes with self adhesive insulation to keep the connection from contacting the metal parts in the hatch causing blown fuses.

I have a 2012 sel. auto store gave me bulbs. i got home, took the inside lining of the hatch apart. still couldnt get to light. i finally pryed it out. (not like the pics above) it was in there with what seemed like a one direction clip. (once poped in not meant to come out.) After removing it i had to pry the lenz off because it was glued. it had a circuit board in it with a very tint circuit board light. dont know eher ill get one. cops pulled me over because light isnt working. i have done some searches including ford dealer and they say dont know when part will become available. what a crock of ship.

My car was just rejected for inspection because of this and a torn wiper blade. I decided to try to fix the issues myself and take it back. I had new blades, bulb in hand, but I couldn't figure out how to get the part off. The guy at the store said that I'd have to have the hatch door dismantled to get to it. So glad that that was not the case. I agree that this is an excellent write up. Thank you!

Great tutorial

Thanks for posting a great tutorial.

I used a plastic tool for opening ipod's to access the license plate bulbs. They are cheap on eBay and worked perfectly.

Thank you for the information on the license plate light replacement. I have another problem and am not sure if it is related to the burnt out license bulbs. My brake lights stay on in any gear, but when I open the hatch back on my 2000 focus wagon the brake lights than go out, when I close it again the brake lights go back on. Also my cruise control suddenly does not work anymore. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Search over in General Tech Chat for "hatch wiring" issues.

You'll find plenty of info/pictures of damaged wires from repeated flexing in the umbilical to the hatch.

Cruise works with the brake light circuit, wrong/bad bulbs/bad wiring will make that stop working.
