Replacing license plate lights on Chevy Trailblazer

I know this sounds like the old joke...how many___ you fill in the blank.. does it take to change a light bulb? I have a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer, and I can't remove the license plate lights. I removed the lense covers, picked up new bulbs (2825LL) from my local auto parts store, and compared them to what the dealer sells for twice as much. So, I have what should be the correct part, however what's in place appears to have a plastic base on the bulb, and the replacment doesn't. I have tried twisting out the bulbs, tried pulling straight out, all with no luck. So what's going on.

I just had the same problem. I took the cover off, saw the white bulb base, twisted it to take it out, but it popped back inside the door. I got it out, but it wouldn't pull through, so I twisted it back in place and went to Autozone to get new bulb. Once I saw the new bulb, it was obvious, just the bulb itself pulls out. There's so little room to work, I couldn't get it with just my fingers - - maybe rubber gloves would have worked, but I used pliers, lightly, wiggled it a little and it popped right out. I had a similar issue once with the taillight bulb and had to break the bulb and then grip the remaining filament wires with pliers to get it out, so that was my backup plan, just in case.

Hope this helps others.

License plate lights? Think those are 191's, and are standard wedge base. However the Tail lights are 3157's (rectangular plastic base). Those pull strait out. Takes a little force to do it. (replaced mine last week - 03 TB)

Replacing headlights in my 2002 chevy trailblazer


You have to get to your headlights inside the hood. You turn your light bracket a quarter of a turn to unlock it. Then pull the bracket out, the bulb will be attached. Do NOT touch the new bulb with your bare hands. The oil from your skin will cause the halogen bulb to get tooo hot and will burn out. You might as well change both of the lights as well. The other one will be going out soon.
