    Default A silly question concerning '94 Suburban interior lights

    OK, stupid question. I bought a '94 Suburban 4x4 last weekend. It has an overhead console, with 4 reading lights in it, little lights you can aim like the ones over the seat in an airplane. One of them is burned out and I assume needs a new bulb. How the heck do I get to the bulb? The lense does not seem to unscrew, or pop out...I don't want to break it messing with it.

    OK, dozens of views and no answer...I don't feel so silly now! I guess no one else knows how to change those stupid lights either! I swung by the stealer, and the service writter scratched his head and said, " I don't know. Wanna leave it?"



    Umm, no. Guess I'll just live with the burned out bulb...

    To get the overhead console down.......There is one bolt at the front of the console,once you remove that bolt......slide the front console forward....and it should come right......as the back-end of the console is just held in with brackets.....nothing to unbolt.

    Once you have the console out, on the back side there are 4-6 Allen bolts take those out and now you will be be to get to the small map lights.


    Edit:......I forgot to mentioned that once the console is unbolted you will need to disconnection the wires(For the Lights) going to the console.

    Additionally, here is a thread that can connect you to a Chiltons just in case you start running into problems, but I don't think you will, as Mike's info is always spot on and thorough.
