Hi. I'm Mike Green. In this video, I'm going to show you how to replace the taillights on, this is a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban, but the taillight procedure is the same for this style suburban, Yukon, Tahoe, and also the 88 to 98 Chevrolet and GMC trucks. We'll get to it.

Taillights, once you open the tailgate or the rear doors, are held in by two screws, one down there, and one up in there.
What I have here is a magnet to help me not drop these screws when they come out. If you do end up dropping one, it's just a regular screw. You can get one from the hardware store to replace them.

Now that we have removed the screw, then we can just pull on the light a little bit. There is a gasket around the edge, so it does stick.
Now that the light is separated, you can just reach in and, with your thumb, pull back the tab and pull out the harness. This here is your taillight connector board. Sometimes, if you're taillight's not working, you replace this board, and it will work. Also, if you just want to replace the bulbs, you just remove the two little screws here, pull the board out, and you can replace the bulbs.

With that, now we can reinstall it, hook up the harness, get the tabs to line up, and push it in. Line up your tabs, then put the screws in. What I would suggest for putting the screws back in is put the screw on the screwdriver, very carefully put it in. Same thing with the bottom one, very carefully.

There you have it. Taillight replacement on a 92 to 99 Suburban or 88 to 99 Chevy or GMC truck. Not much more than a Phillips screwdriver, a pen magnet if you have one, and you're set. You can either fix the damaged one, or if your light's not working in your replace the bulbs, and also replace the taillight connecting board.
