Open the trunk and carefully pull off the trunk lid carpet liner by working at each black push-pin. They will be tight, so confine your pulling to as close to each as possible. Using a deepwell 10mm socket, remove the 11 (?) nut washers on the studs holding the license plate and lamp assembly onto the trunk lid. Carefully remove the entire license plate/lamp assembly. You can remove the sockets and harness if desired.

You will need to replace ALL the bulbs - why go through this again ?? You'll need 4 each #194 (tag/running lights), 4 each #3457, and 2 each 2357.

The OEM bulbs are #3057 and #1157, but the new numbers are slightly brighter. Don't worry about the backup lamp bulbs being dual-filament: the wedge base will always align the correct filaments in the socket.

Now place a dab of flexible duct seal (hardware store) around each stud base. Carefully push the assembly back into place, and using an assistant, check the operation of all circuits. OK ?? replace all the nut washers, snugging them up in a center to outside sequence to spread the loads - don't tighten each one all the way the first time - work around and around 3 times.

If you still have a bulb out or dim bulbs, then check the wire harness where it exits the left trunk hinge rail and also the harness ground at the sheet metal at the left fenderwell.

Change out a taillight


You want to change the tail light bulb?

The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



    Instructions

    1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

    2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

    3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

    4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

    5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.

How to replace brake light bulb?


If similar to 2002 MPV, you detach the whole side light module, then pop out the bulb-socket, then you can replace the bulb. You need a philips screwdriver, medium size. Open the back hatch. Remove the two screws on the inside edge of the light-assembly. Now pull the whole assembly *sideways* not back - it is held by two detent-pins that face out. You can swing it out a bit and then carefully lever it at top or bottom edge. Lower the assembly face-down, you can see three bulb-sockets. They can be turned a part-turn, I think counter-clockwise, then they pop out. Replace bulb(s), re-insert socket, push assembly back onto pins, replace screws. Just did this for brake/tail light 10 minutes ago.

Odometer light faded away still working but no light, how do I fix this problem The answer we need is how to replace this bulb. The back light on my LED odometer is not lighting up either.


This is not LED but LCD, this means it has no light emitting capability of it's own, there is a back bulb light behind it, you will have to pull the cluster out to replace that odometer back light bulb.

Replace front driver signal light bulb


Depending on whether it is the front or the back turn indicator light will determine on what needs to be done. If it is the front turn indicator light open the hood of the car you may need to take the entire headlight out. The headlight may have screws, take the screws out then the front light will come out from the outside of the vehicle replace the burned out bulb. The bulb should snap right in and then put the headlight back in make sure you put all screws back in from the inside of the hood. Step2 If it is the back turn indicator light, go through the trunk of the vehicle. If there is a panel covering the lights you must unscrew the panel and then replace the burned out light bulb. Some panels can be folded down without removing all of the screws to access the lights. This light may not require for you to pop the entire light out you maybe able to just replace the bulb. After you have replaced it screw the panel back into place. The back light should not require the entire light to be lifted out just a simple bulb replacement. Step3 In replacing either the front or the back indicator light you must gain access to the turn signal housing which is usually in the same case as the headlight or your rear lights. It is very helpful to also get the owners manual out this will tell you exactly what type of bulbs you will need to get to replace the indicator bulb.
