This may be a dumb question but how do I remove the license plate bulbs on my cater... I unscrew the 2 screws holding the light in but can't figure out how to get the bulb out. Any help would be great.

There's two screws per side, T15 torx...They need to be removed.
Try pulling the whole assembly straight down. If it doesn't come out by hand, carefully use a flathead screwdriver to pry it out.
Once it's pulled down, if you prefer easier you can disconnect the two wiring pigtails or leave it connected.
Pull back the rubber boot on the back/sides, you'll than be able to access the bulbs.

Bulb size is 6418. If one has already gone out, I'd go ahead and replace them both.
