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 low beam, high beam or front turn signal light bulb in the headlight assemblies.

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.

Replacement bulbs for the 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 Camaro models are as follows: Dual Low & High Beam Headlight # H13, and Front Turn Signal # 3457A.

Replacement bulbs for the 2014 & 2015 Camaro with their part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # H11, High Beam # H9 and Front Turn Signal # 7444NA (or 7444A).

No tools are needed to replace the bulbs on the passenger side. To change the bulbs on the driver side, you will need a flathead screwdriver to disconnect the air box cover.

If you are going to replace a bulb on the passenger side, please skip down past the engine air filter box removal steps.

To change any of the bulbs in the driver side headlight assembly, you'll need to remove the top cover of the engine air filter box and pull out the plastic air intake tube.

Gently pull back the two release tabs on air box to release the top cover.

Then slide back the red plastic locking tab on the air intake temperature sensor's electrical connector.
