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 rear side marker light bulb in the back 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 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 7mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratcheting wrench.

7mm Screw Removed
Pull Out Side of Fascia
Release Retaining Clip
The first step is to remove the 7mm screw that holds the rear fascia bumper cover in place to the back quarter panel.

Loosen the screw by turning it counterclockwise with the 7mm socket and ratcheting wrench.

Set the screw aside in a safe place.

Carefully but firmly pull the front edge of the rear fascia bumper cover straight out towards yourself to release the clips.
