This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) GM Chevrolet Camaro in changing a burnt out front side marker light bulb in the front fascia bumper cover.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Spark, Cruze, Malibu, Sonic, Impala, Traverse, Tahoe, Trax, SS, GMC Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave and the Holden Barina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement front side marker light bulb is part number 194 which is available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

The tools needed to complete this procedure include a Torx T20 star bit screwdriver and a flathead screwdriver.

Release Retaining Clip
The first step is to turn the steering all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out front side marker light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will give you more room to access the wheel well liner (or "splash guard").

Remove the three screws that hold the wheel well liner in place by turning them counterclockwise with the Torx T-20 star bit screwdriver.

Set the three screws aside in a safe place.

Gently pull back the black plastic wheel well liner to access the front side marker light bulb housing.
