Cleaning License Plate Lamps.



Introduction: Cleaning License Plate Lamps.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

This plate lamp looks terrible. It needs cleaning!

Step 1: Removal.

Just 2 screws to be removed here. See the rust inside? Nasty.

Step 2: Cleaning.

Using engine degreaser I cleaned the lens. Then I dried thoroughly. Now it's super clear!

Step 3: The Culprit.

Water ingress caused this led to rust. I replaced with a new led.

Step 4: Completion.

I reassembled the lamp with an dose of silicone gasket maker to ensure weather protection. Now the license plate will be well lit!
