Has anyone replaced the stock bulbs yet? I can't figure out how to get to them.

im not familiar with the 2013. but usually bulbs can easily be accessed one of two ways.

1. from behind a pop out panel on inside of trunk lid (sometimes its a screw panel)
2. the bulb housing themselves can be unscrewed or popped out from outside vehicle. if you dont see screws you might see a small half inch recess for a flathead screwdriver to wedge in and pop off.

quite a few people have had LED plate bulbs... hopefully someone with a MD will chine in

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

I've done the bulb swap on a coupe and its just like the sedan but the GT is a bit different, I can't access them from inside and there aren't any indications that I can slide them out from a exterior approach. I really looking for a second opinion before I start trying different things....forcibly.

Bowser!!! Haha when I saw you were from the 'burgh was thinking of asking where you bought your car.

We're originally from the Philly area and drove cross state to nab a fully loaded Hyundai Entourage from there. This was after they were discontinued and there were few to be found. It was worth the trip and we got a great deal. Plus it was a nice road trip back!
