Hi. I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. Today, I'm going to show you how to replace this third brake light assembly in this 2008 Chevy Silverado. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

We're going to take a Philips head screwdriver. Take the two Phillips head screws out. This one as well. Pull those screws out. You can pull them out completely. Grab the light assembly, and just slide it back. Then disconnect the connector right here. Just push down on the button and slide that connector off.

I'm going to reinstall this assembly. You want to make sure that if this clip slides down, like this one did, that you reinsert it into this position, right there. Make sure this one's good too. Connect this connector right here. Plug it in like that. I'm just going to take a rag and wipe this. You can use a little bit of soapy water or some glass cleaner to clean this up a little bit, because if you don't clean this up when you reinstall this, you're probably going to end up with a water leak, because there's a seal on here. Looks pretty good.

Slide this into position. Take our screws. Get that one started. Get this one started as well. Take my Phillips head screwdriver, and just snug it down not too tight. The lens assembly is plastic, so you don't want to crack it. I'm good to go.
