2018: Model 3 - License Plate Light


New Member
Feb 8, 2021
Looking for assistance with:
  1. Where to source part?
  2. How to remove part?
Car: 2018 Tesla 3 Long Range

  • 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.
