2001 SC2
Default changing backup bulbs

***the title is wrong as i meant license plate bulbs but i can't change the title....

is it me or is it a major pain in the ass to change license plate bulbs on a 2001sc2? the screws rust in place requiring drilling out & i wind up replacing the outer plastic lenses as well as i destroy them while drilling out the screws. i wonder if using anti-seize will keep the screws from seizing up....

do any of the other bulbs on the car like the taillights/side markers give you any trouble like the backups? i noticed screws on the side of the rear taillights that might also freeze up?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I guess I am not familiar with the 3rd gen SC but all my sedans just had plastic light housings that have a clamp so to speak which you just squeeze and pull out. They are the easiest car ever for changing plate bulbs. Too bad the SC isn't setup like the other S-cars.

on my car there's 2 plate bulbs & each one has 2 steel screws in them which screws into metal threads which rust up making it impossible to get them out without some serious drilling. stupid design......
