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 replace the license plate light, both the bulb and the lens on this 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500. It's the same process on a large variety of GM trucks from 2001 to 2012. You won't need any tools for this job.

Here is your license plate light. Go up behind it, and when you reach up behind it you see there's a little tab there. Reach up and push that tab in and pop the light out. You can just pull it right out.

To change the bulb, twist the socket, pull the bulb out, push the new one in, and then twist it back in. If you do need a new lens you can see 1A Auto has exact matches, and it's exactly the same.

Twist the socket back in, push the parking light right back into place, and you're all set.
