Reverse Light replacement

    Since this is the first GM truck I've owned, i need to replace a reverse light on the passenger side.. I hate to sound "stupid", but I haven't a clue how to remove the tail light assembly to get to the bulb. I have a Chevy bed liner in the truck, and all I can see when I pull it back are 2 screws on the side near the tail-gate...

    I looked through the forum and (hopefully I'm overlooking it), but haven't found anywhere that it tells me how to change it - which I'm assuming you remove the entire housing to get to the bulb..

    Thanks!!

    Those two screws are it... Unscrew them and your tail light should swing out like a door... There are 2 tabs that slide into the bed side opposite the screws...

    i dont see the tabs unless they are hidden behind that tail-light assembly... nothing is behind the bedliner just looked.... so i'll go to an advanced or autozone store and grab a light bulb then remove those two screws and see what i find from there - then let you know... thnx!!

    Yes, the tabs are on the back side of the tail light...

    Got the light replaced and see that now its almost "simple" to replace any of the bulbs in these trucks...
