Rear Side Marker Bulb Replacement

I don't remember ever seeing anything on the rear side markers and thus I though I'd post. I'm finding it mildly annoying but judge for yourselves:

1. Remove rear splash shield.
2. Remove screw (1) hidden under inside edge of bumper fascia.
3. Disconnect electrical connector from bulb socket (2).
4. Rotate bulb socket (2) counterclockwise and remove from lamp assembly.
5. Replace #194 bulb (3).

Optionally, depress locking tab on the lamp assembly toward bulb socket and pull lamp assembly out front edge first.

Good stuff...it will definitely come in handy for those that want to remove it to smoke/paint also.

Thanks Starship.

Thank you!! I have a bulb out, I figured no problem. Took the trunk shielding out and started at the metal fender. I put it back together and Googled it. Thanks again!

Re: Rear Side Marker Bulb Replacement

Seriously is there anything on this car that isn't a major pain in the ass? I just did my headlights the other day and it took like 4 - 5 hours.. FOR A BULB. Needless to say I replaced all of the front bulbs in the process, for hopefully the first and last time ever on this car. Now the side marker is this much of a pain? Do you have to remove the wheel? I couldn't get my little socket wrench to turn that bolt where the bumper cover connects to the rear panel. Any ideas? Is there a cheap tool that makes this easier like a swivel with electric drive or something?

Are the new Malibu's like this with their bulbs or did they stop trying to gouge people at the dealers for what should be a 30 second job?
Can't wait for my Tesla Model 3!
