One Of Many Ways To Change The Headlight Bulb On A 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500




What do you think about this video?

Mike Conover: I dreaded changing my burned out bulb after watching this video. But on my 2007 silverado I was able to reach in and replace the drivers side without removing anything in less than 5 minutes. The passenger side required removing the air box. It just snaps in and out. Passenger side took maybe 15 minutes.

Jon Walters: Such a poor design someone should be fired for it. Not looking forward to all this work.

joey mcknight: On my 07 I dont have to remove all of that to change my bilbs out.. I can reach down behind and change the bulbs,,

Chad: I have a 2008 that looks just like that and i wanted to install some strobe lights in my head lights but that looks like alot of work to get the headlight things out. plus i have a push bumper on my truck so its probably even harder since thats probably in the way now too. any suggestions?

Sean G: Are you kidding me?! I'm changing my headlights right now in Anchorage effing ALASKA, in the cold. Headlights should be a road side serviceable item, since they're kind of an essential to night time driving. This is ridiculous! It must have been some dumbass engineer at GM (that probably drives a Honda) thinking that they can recoup some of that bail out money by making most pickup truck owners return to their dealer to get a new set of effing headlights installed! Not happy at all.

silverbullet2005: I have a 2008 Sierra and I just replaced my drivers side headlight before winter, last night I noticed my passenger side headlight is burned out. sounds like the passenger side will be easier to replace but damn. On the Sierra you can leave the grill in but the plastic filler between the bumper and headlights has to be removed. GM made it a PITA to change the headlights, I'm not about to do this at night!

JesseLJohnson: holy crap I had a turn signal go out and I took the top 2 bolts out and couldn't figure out what else was holding my headlight its new too only had it since Jan

cyras21: Really poor design but excellent video explaining what to do! You're gonna save my sanity!

tj2040168: Thats why u stick to Ford!

urgay8888888810: Thanks for the video, What has happened to intelligent engineering ?

crlaw75: I looked under the hood of a '14 Chev truck and it is much easier to change a bulb. The passenger side you might have to take one or two items off to get at the bulbs

Firstname Lastname: You're fortunate that you weren't as lucky as me who has a Northface Edition Trailblazer and we broke the darn headlamp washers off just trying to get the grill off. Oh and the bulb was the correct size-wrong model. Great. We get to do it twice. Lol how stupid.

Cory R: Saw this video to do my 07 silverado. This is a PITA. Trading this clunker in, my 81 breaks less often and is easier ti fix than this. Goodbye GM, this decade long relationship has ended.

crlaw75: My neighbour buddy got a '13 Silverado and I explained to him the steps here that you did to change the bulb. The space is tight and getting the signal bulbs is even worse on these models because of the way the bulbs are (GMC's have an easier access.). What is worse about it is there is a metal bar infront of the bulb, which makes it tough to get at it.

tristatebobcat: I shared my experience with an import mechanic and he said he had to remove the front bumper to replace the headlight on a Honda - go figure! Sparks and Splinters

oceandojo: Alternatively: unscrew three bolts that secure the mud shroud, slip your hand up behind the lights, feel for socket, turn 1/4 counterclockwise, let down the bulb, unclip it and pull the bulb from socket, put the new bulb in, replace the bulb back into the light housing, turn the socket 1/4 turn clockwise, replace the three bolts from the mud shroud. DONE! TIPS: careful not to--break socket clips, to knock the new bulb nor touch new bulb with your bare fingers, where finger oils shorten bulb life

bennettdna09: If you are lucky enough that the burnt out bulb is on the passenger side all you have to do is remove the airbox.

dotaylor617: Thought I was gonna change the headlight quickly but to no avail. This has to have been designed to increase the survive-ability of dealerships since parts are marked WAY up. I had to replace a nylon clip on the tailgate assy. and figured I'd buy 2 left and 2 right, for spares, since this problem of breaking clips is endemic with Chevy and has been for a decade (I have a 94 too, same prob). These fragile plastic parts were almost $8.00 each! WTF? Also 07=falling-apart-n-est interior ever.

55houchin: great help-what a joke. Another example of trying to get us to have them repair a simple item.

Aaron Keller: HAHA... May as well remove a rear bumper, door panel, and your floor mats if you want to take all of these necessary steps. I'm not a small guy and I prefer to just reach below the windshield washer fluid tube for the drivers side and take the cover off the air filter for the passenger side

devon fowler: Haha woww that sucks! I have an 02 soo much moree easyy

KFD26: what a pian in the ass. I have a 2008 Yukon and I gave it a try without seeing any of these videos. When I couldn't figure it out I turned to YouTube. I remember the old way on my 2001 when you lift the two rods and bingo, you're done.....what a big pain. THANKS for your video!

acronus: HUGE thank you for posting this. I never would have found the 3rd bolt without it. While I was in there, I also had to repair part of the wiring harness (wires frayed right at the plug) and I changed the yellow side marker bulbs. What a supreme pain in the ass design. I miss the older Chevs.

Alex Shibley: i changed mine out on a drilling rig site with only a rusty old fork as a tool. simply reach in directly over the bulb, turn it a quarter turn and pull it out. i took the wiring harness off with a fork (im sure a FLAT HEAD SCREW DRIVER WOULD WORK MUCH BETTER) put the new bulb on and twist it back on. done in under 2 min

bdf70: I agree! GM sucks! How do you think us Tech's feel about this. It don't pay much and if your a crapty tech that don't care then you will make money at the customers expense! The 09 to current Malibu is worse. I have been a GM Tech for 22 years and GM after the bail out has just gone down hill so bad I went to Chrysler!

Sean G: By the way. THANK YOU THANK YOU for the video. Do you live close to a GM plant? If so there's a hundred dollars waiting for you if you lay out the first engineer you see. No questions asked.lol

revgilliam: I'm about to try to change the headlight in my 08. Thanks for the video.

KING VIN: I feel your pain. I changed my 07 tahoe headlights with an H.I.D. kits and it was a pain in the ass, Hats off to you Chevy, you SOB's....

Marc Edson: DO NOT GO THROUGH THIS TO CHANGE YOUR BULB!!!! I have the same truck. Remove the 2nd battery (which I don't even have) and there's PLENTY of room to remove the headlamp without doing ANY of this. Be sure the old rubber boot (mine was dark orange) comes off with the burned out bulb. Took me 30 seconds to do...

don ashfield: Your right...it was tight, but I could do the drivers side without moving anything.

scruffy26: Well think about it for a second, why would GM design it like this? So that just about everyone will take their truck to their damn dealerships so that they in turn rip you off just to change your burnt out lights! This is just freaking absurd and ridiculous!

lubbocktx35: WOW! I'm so happy I have a '04. That seems like waaaaaay to much trouble just to change a bulb. Like u said what in the world were they thinking. Think I'd have to pay someone to do that crap LOL! great vid buddy

noel nutt: Way too much trouble. I unhooked and removed the battery, changed bulb, replaced and reconnected the battery, and was done. Still sucked, but much easier.

Pete Matte: sorry but you went the long way to change the bulb. I just did mine 10 minutes ago and all you have to do is take out the battery plate on the driver side take out the 10 mill bolt on the washer fluid jug and there is a rod that goes from the fender to the rad support gently pull the washer fluid jug back it moves fair enough to get the bulb out the trick is to unplug the bulb first

tcamilleri888: Thank u!! Your video saved me 200 bucks.

randuff: The 99-06 were sooooooooo much easier.... Pin, pin, pull, done!

crlaw75: The GMCs are easier to change than this. All I did was remove the cover between the headlamp and bumper, loosen the hidden third bolt, worked the cover between the lamp and bumper so it is out, removed the two bolts and pulled the assembly out (the two pins broke on one of them). Didn't have to remove the rad cover. But yes, this design is daunting.

tristatebobcat: There may be a better way but I have not found it yet. One guy said his wife could reach down behind the headlight - unbelievable - he let his wife touch his truck!

pheet: you got that right"poor design"by chevy..thats and understatment!!

CptCannibal: Yeah I just pulled my drivers side battery and my hand fit just fine to turn the bulb, replaces the bulb and put the battery back in. It's just a matter of thinking outside the box!!!!

Zachary Hazard: it would be easier to just buy a new truck. I bet you pulled the engine to change the oil too. darn those GM engineers!

Arizona895: plus new fords are ugly to have

Jordan Murray: I got my wife to reach in. Done. Do it this way, or get someone with small hands.

A1soldiersaint: I have a 2007 sierra, pretty similar work required. I wish I had my F150 back. Everyone in my family is starting to buy Fords, my dad gave me his last GM, my Z71 Sierra. It will be my only and last GM product. I will be trading it for a Ford, or Dodge diesel (cant afford new Super Duty). The difference is in the engineering, I couldn't care less about a brand name.
