How to Install LED Backup Light on Chevrolet Cruze

Chevrolet Cruze just replaced the Daewoo-based Lacetti Touring cars in the WTCC last season. And in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), the Chevrolet Cruze team won seven races with driver Jason Plato. This car is fantastic and worth to have. Today we’re going to replace the reverse lights and the plate lights in my 2011 Chevy Cruze. It’s a pretty easy install, so I’m gonna show you guys how to replace these lights.

The first thing is to open up your trunk and then find yourself a flathead and Phillips head screwdriver. Use a  flathead screwdriver to take it and pop open the two little caps that cover the screws that are holding the brake light assembly into the vehicle. Unscrew the two screw that is holding the head or the brake light rather into the vehicle.

Take a firm hold of the brake light, wiggle it out of its position. The reserve light is on the left, disconnect the wires to the vehicle. Take the light out and twist it counterclockwise until it clicks and then pull it straight up. take the bulb and pull it straight out of its socket. take the 1156 LED bulb, clip it back into where the incandescent bulb came out of and then reinstall it the same way and turn it clockwise to lock the bulb into place.

Reinstall the brake light back into the vehicle, simply realign the light back up, push it straight back into the vehicle, reinstall the two screws that hold it into place and then go ahead and shut the little screw caps.
