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.
