2014 Camaro Side Marker
Turn Front Wheels
Remove Torx T20 Screws
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.

If you would like to have brighter side marker lights, install some compatible 194 LED bulbs.

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

3 Torx T20 Screws Removed
Pull Back Wheel Well Liner
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.

Push In With Screwdriver
Light Housing Removed
Disconnect Power Plug
Use a flathead screwdriver to gently push in and release the plastic retaining clip near the rear edge of the housing.

Pull the tab at the front of the housing out of the fascia bumper cover.

Press the release tab on the power plug before sliding it straight off the base of the socket.


1/4 Turn Counterclockwise
Pull Out Old Bulb
Push In New # 194 Bulb
Rotate the base of the bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it out of the housing.

Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket and push in a new # 194 bulb.

If necessary, you may also be able to use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 168, W5W, 2825 or a compatible LED bulb.

1/4 Turn Clockwise - Lock
Push On Electrical Connector
Insert Plastic Tab On Front
Re-insert the socket in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Push the power plug on to the base of the socket until it clicks securely in to place.

First re-insert the tab on the front edge of the housing in to the fascia bumper cover.

Pop In Retaining Clip
Close Wheel Well Liner
Tighten Torx T-20 Screws
Gently snap in the retaining clip on the rear edge of the housing.

Push the wheel well liner back in to place.

Tighten the three screws in the clockwise direction with the Torx T20 star bit screwdriver.
