I put LED lights above the license plate

How did you get these lights out and open? I tried carefully prying one from the short ends and it came out a little and loose but I could not see how to get it further out or remove the clear cover. Unfortunately now it won't fit tightly back in, so a tab or something may have broken but that's a different problem.

I had to use a relatively long and thin flat head screwdriver. It needed to be inserted what I would describe as "further than reasonable" in order to disengage the locking tab. Speaking precisely, how far was that? Uhmm, about an inch, maybe? I forget. But, yeah, it was definitely weird. Not really difficult, but not really easy either.

Just replaced my LIcense plate lights with LEDs since one was burn out and slightly broken lenses for some reason. The new ones came as a set with housing and a pigtail plug, they just plug into the socket where the old bulb was, 5 min installation. Definitely Bright!
