2014 Impala Trunk Light
Screwdriver In Notch
Pry Out Light Housing
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 cargo area light bulb in the trunk.

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 part number is 2825 or you can also use any other miniature wedge base light bulbs such as the 168, 194, W5W or a compatible LED unit.

The only tool needed to access and replace the light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Disconnect Power Plug
Push Out Old Light Bulb
Old Light Bulb Removed
Insert a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool in to the notch on the right (passenger) side of the light housing.

Gently pry out the light housing.

Press the release tab on the black plastic electrical connector before sliding the power plug straight out of the socket.

Use the screwdriver to gently push the base of the old bulb out of the socket.

Old # 2825 Light Bulb
Push In New # 2825 Bulb
Push In Electrical Connector
Push a new number 2825 light bulb straight in to the socket.

Slide the power plug straight in to its socket.

Re-Insert Wires First
Gently Pop In Retaining Clip
Testing New Trunk Light
Re-insert the wires in to the left (driver) side of the opening in the trunk roof.

Gently snap in the retaining clip on the right (passenger) side of the housing.

If the new light bulb didn't turn on as soon as you pushed in the power plug, test it by opening and closing the trunk or by pressing the "Unlock" button on the key fob to activate the interior lights.
