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 as well as replace the entire taillight assembly on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe. We show you on the driver side, but the passenger side is the same procedure. The items you'll need for this include new taillights from 1AAuto.com, a flat blade screwdriver, and a Phillips screwdriver.

Using your flat blade screwdriver, you want to pry out this cap and this cap right here. Now, you want to remove this Phillips screw and this Phillips screw. We'll just fast-forward as Don does that. Now, pull the taillight straight out and then pull back on the tab on this harness and pull it free.

Now, if you want to just service the bulbs, you just remove these two Phillips screws holding on this panel. Now, you just pull the bulb out and then push your new one in. The other two are the exact same way. If your circuit board ever breaks, we do offer exact replacements at 1AAuto.com.

To replace the bulbs, you can just put that circuit board back into place and replace those two Phillips screws. In the back is the original light; in the middle is the new light from 1AAuto. You can see in exact replacement. We also offer kind of a performance style and these styles do change from time to time. This is example of what we were offering when this video is done.

To re-install, plug it back in, put the light in place, and line up the holes, and re-install those two screws.

Replace those two caps. To give you a better idea of how they look, on the left is the new one and on the right is the old one. You can see they're identical. These just look a little bit newer. Then for the performance taillight and just a close up of it. And you're all set.

We hope this video helps you out. Brought to you by www.1AAuto.com, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the Internet. Please feel free to call us toll-free, 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the Internet and in person.
