This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Chevrolet Tahoe in changing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper cover.

Owners of related General Motors full size trucks or SUV vehicles with similar fog light housings such as the Suburban, Avalanche, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali, Sierra, Cadillac Escalade and Hummer H2 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM replacement bulb is part number PS24WFF.

Other compatible bulbs include the following: 5202, H16, 9009, ACDelco # 15839897 and Philips 12086.

The tools needed to replace the bulbs include a 7mm socket with a 1/4" drive ratcheting wrench, a flathead screwdriver and a pair of needle nose pliers.
