Looking for assistance with:
  1. Where to source part?
  2. How to remove part?
Car: 2018 Tesla 3 Long Range

Observations:
  • No screws, looks like it's "popped" into place?
  • Interestingly both of the license plate lights are out
  • I believe the OEM part is - 1077408-00-E
RE #1: Any advice where one can buy replacement license light replacement parts? Not finding anything except on used parts on eBay. Amazon shows all kinds of parts but they don't look like they will fit at all

RE #2: How do you actually change the light? Newer models have two screws you unscrew? Do I just apply pressure on the side?

Below is image of how the license plate light is affixed to car.

They're LED so failure rate should be VERY low. If both are out something is going on since the chance both burning out at the same time is extremely rare. Try removing the trunk lid plastic panel to access them.
