Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to change out the headlight high beam and low beam bulbs as well as the turn signal and marker lights in this 2015 Chevy Silverado LT. All you'll need is a flat blade screwdriver and small pair of side cutters. This process is going to be the same to change the actual bulb on the both the driver's and passenger's side, but if you are replacing the high or low beam on the passenger side, you'll have to add the extra steps to remove the air box. You can do all of this with a flat blade screwdriver.

Going to remove the four screws securing the lid of the air box down onto the base. This can also be done with an eight millimeter socket or Phillips screwdriver, if you'd like. Lift up on the red safety tab for the math sensor, may be helpful to use your screw driver here, press down, move the connection. Unscrew the band clamp onto the intake boot. You don't have to take this all the way off, just make sure that it's loose enough that we can easily remove and reinstall our air box.

Remove the lid, set your air box off to the side. Remove the air filter itself, pop the air box out. Remove the plastic clips retaining the radiator shroud in place. Just pull up, pull the center piece out, pry out at the bottom. The one over by the fender looks a little bit different, but that's going to pop out the same.

We're going to use a small pair of side cutters to get underneath the plastic retainers on the wiring harness. Don't want to actually cut through them, we’re just going to use them so that we can evenly pull out on both retainers. Can pull that out of the way, fold down this shroud, access the covers on our headlight bulbs. Turn the cover on the back of the headlight, counterclockwise to release it, pull up, take that out of the way. Push down and remove the electrical connector on the bottom of our bulb. Turn this counter clockwise as well, remove it from the housing.

Install your new bulb into the back of the housing and see that the connector end sits at about the four, five o'clock position. Turn that counterclockwise and reconnect our electrical connector. You'll see on the back of our cover there's an arrow, labelled down to show us which way that it's actually going to sit on there. We'll reinstall that onto the back of the housing. Again at about the four, five o'clock position. Turn it clockwise and lock it back into place. See that we have the same cover down below there, so you're going to repeat these steps. We use the same steps to change the bulb on the bottom. Again this process is the same on the driver's side, only you won't have to remove the air box and this plastic shroud.

In order to access the turn signal bulbs, you'll need to reach through the access panel. Which is going to be the same on both sides of the vehicle. Again, you'll have to remove the air box to get at this on the passenger's side, but on the driver's side, you won't need to remove anything. Feel around for the bulb socket. When you find it, turn it counterclockwise. You have enough leash there that you can remove it. Carefully wiggle the bulb out of the socket. Install your new bulb, reinsert it into the hole in the back of the housing, turn clockwise to lock it back into place.

Reinstall the plastic hold downs for the wiring harness, got to line them up. Pop them back in, set up your two plastic clips. You're going to pull out the center, all the way up without removing it. Again it just lines up, snap it down into place, and line up the bottom half of the air box. This daft is going to go under that access panel, line up the pins, and snap it back into place. Reinstall your air filter, slide the air box lid back in, reinstall the intake boot, and tighten up the clamp on the intake boot. Reinstall the electrical connector for the math sensor. Push the red safety back into place, tighten down the four screws for the air box cover.
