2006 Tahoe Fog Light
Look Under Bumper

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 fog light bulb in the front 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 also the Cadillac Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement halogen fog light bulb is part number 880 which is available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

I recommend buying the Sylvania 880 fog halogen light bulb.

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, install some compatible replacement 880 LED bulbs.

No tools are needed to change the bulb.

1/4 Turn CC
Old GE 880 12V Bulb
Look under the front bumper and locate the base of the old fog light bulb.

Gently pull up on the retaining clip and slide the electrical connector straight off the base of the old bulb.

Rotate the base of the old bulb 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull it straight out of the housing.


Empty Bulb Housing
1/4 Turn Clockwise - Lock

Avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or anything greasy under the bumper. If you do get the new bulb dirty, wipe it clean with an alcohol moistened paper towel.

Insert a new # 880 halogen light bulb into the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

If you would like brighter fog lights, install some 880 LED bulbs.

Push the power plug straight on to the base of the new bulb until it clicks securely in to place.

Be sure to record the bulb change in your vehicle's service records.
