2014 Camaro Trunk Light
Pry Out At Notch
Pull Out Light Housing
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 cargo area light bulb in the trunk.

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 trunk light bulb is part number 194 which is available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, PIAA and Eiko.

If you would like to have a brighter trunk light, choose a compatible 194 LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool used to pry out the light housing.

Light Housing Removed
Press Release Tab
Disconnect Power Plug
Open the trunk lid and locate the cargo area light bulb housing.

Insert a small flathead screwdriver in to the notch on the right (passenger) side of the housing.

Gently pry out the edge of the light housing and then remove it from the roof panel of the trunk.

Press the release tab on the electrical connector and slide it straight off the housing.

Push Out Old Bulb
Old Bulb Removed
Old # 194 Wedge Base
If the old bulb was recently turned on, be careful since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Either pull out the old bulb with your fingers or gently push it out of the socket with the flathead screwdriver.


Push In New # 194 Bulb
Push On Electrical Connector
Re-Insert Wires First
Push a new # 194 bulb straight in to the socket.

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

Push the power plug straight on to the side of the light housing until it clicks securely in to place.

Re-insert the wires on the left side of the housing in to the opening in the trunk roof first.

Snap In Retaining Clip
Bulb Housing Re-Installed
Test New Trunk Light Bulb
Gently pop in the retaining clip on the other side of the light housing.

Test the new trunk light bulb by pressing the "Unlock" button on the key fob or by opening and closing the trunk.
