This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the tenth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) GM Chevy Impala in changing a burnt out footwell light bulb or upgrading them both to brighter LED units.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Malibu, Cruze, Camaro, Sonic, Spark, Volt, Corvette, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, SS Sedan, Bolt, Colorado, Silverado, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Envision, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra 1500, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, CTS, XTS, CT6, XT5, SRX and Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part number is 168. You can also use a brighter LED unit.

No tools are needed to access and replace the light bulbs.

Be careful when you remove the old light bulb. If it was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Grasp the old light bulb with your thumb and forefinger before pulling it straight out of the socket.
