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

In this video, we're going to show you how to service the bulbs, as well as replace the entire parking light assembly on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. It's the same part and similar process on these Suburbans from 2000 to 2006. We show you on the passenger's side, but the driver's side is a similar procedure. The items you'll need for this includes new parking lights from 1AAuto.com, a flat blade screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, and a 10mm socket and ratchet.

Start off by removing your headlight. To do that, you just push these rods in, and then lift them up and out. Now you can pull your headlight out. Just reach down behind it, and you can see there's a tab right here on the parking light, just push that in, and your parking light will pop out.

To service the bulbs, you just push the tabs on the socket and turn it. It's counterclockwise to remove it. The bulb pulls straight out. You can push your new bulb in and twist it back into place clockwise to lock it. This middle one is the same, and the one on the end, just pulls straight out, bulb pulls out, new one goes in.

Now, to replace the entire assembly, remove all three of your sockets from the light. On the bottom is the old parking light; above it is the identical match from 1AAuto.com and above that is a performance version we offer. Both parking lights will fit exactly the same as the stock parking light.

Now twist your sockets into your new parking light assembly and push this last one in. Then push this tab in first into this slot right here, and then just push the parking light straight back into place. Line up your headlight and push it back into place. Then push those rods back down in, turn them back inwards to lock them, and you're all set.
