This video shows you how to install a new license plate light assembly on your 1999-2007 Chevy Silverado.

Okay, friends, so, it's gonna be time to get started on this plate light assembly right here. If you were to look at it, you would see that it has this little tab. What we wanna do, is from the back side of this bumper, we would press on the tab, and that'll release this from the bumper itself. This one's obviously not in the best condition, so, we're gonna replace it. When I do these, usually I like to do them as a pair, so, they'll match. If you're not necessarily worried about it, you could, of course, paint it to match whatever color you need it to be.

With that said, I'm just gonna take my pocket screwdriver, I'm gonna come underneath the bumper, just like this. And then I'm gonna try to find that tab. I'll just push on that tab. Go ahead and grab onto the pigtail, give it a twist, counterclockwise, and remove it.I always like to remove the bulb. This should be a 194 bulb. Take a look inside. Make sure you can see that the filament is still in good condition, and the bulb is not discolored. I'll just reinsert it back on there. Double check the seal. Make sure your seal's in good condition. If it looks like it's torn or even missing, obviously, you're gonna want a seal.

Let's go ahead and take this, and, get it on there. Twist it clockwise to lock it in. Give it a nice tug. Make sure it doesn't come loose. At this point, you're gonna see you have a hookey-doo on this side. And, this is the side that we pushed in on to remove it. So, when we insert, we're gonna go at an angle, and we're gonna put this side inside, and up against there first, and then roll the other side in. Okay. Slide it in. It should click. Make sure it's nice and secure. That looks great. Let's just test it.
