This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006) GM Chevrolet Tahoe SUV in changing a burnt out license plate light bulb in the rear bumper.

Owners of other General Motors GMT800 series SUV or truck vehicles such as the Chevy Silverado, Suburban, Avalanche, GMC Yukon, Sierra, Hummer H2 and the Cadillac Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement light bulbs are part number 194, which are available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, PIAA and Eiko.

I recommend the Sylvania 194 Long Life light bulbs.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 168, W5W, 2825 or a compatible LED unit.

No tools are needed to replace the bulbs.
