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 power door lock switch on this 2011 Silverado 1500. This is the LT model. The LTZ model will be a little bit different. The only tools you'll need are a 10mm socket and ratchet and a flat blade screwdriver. We're going to show you the driver side; passenger side's generally the same. It's also the same for GMC Sierra SLE.

Using a flat blade screwdriver, you just want to pry off this pull handle trim panel. Now you have access to these two 10mm bolts. You just want to go ahead and remove those. You want to pry up that switch panel and just disconnect these harnesses. Just push in the tab on the top and pull back on them. For this lead there's a tab on the back of it. You just want to pry out the tab, and then the clip will actually pull up and out. While pushing on the button side of the switch, pry the tabs that hold the switch into the bezel, and as you push and pry, the switch will pop up and out.

You can see the old one on the bottom and the new one on the top from 1A Auto. They're exactly the same and will fit the same. Take the new door lock switch and just push it into place on the switch panel. You just want to reconnect those harnesses. Then you just want to make sure your harnesses are pushed in there and push the switch panel right down. Then we'll fast foward as he puts that pull handle back into place, replaces the two 10mm bolts, and the trim panel.
