This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) GMC Terrain in changing a burnt out footwell light bulb located below the dashboard.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Enclave, Envision, GMC Canyon, Sierra 1500, Acadia, Yukon, Denali, Savana, Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, Impala, Volt, Camaro, Corvette, SS, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Silverado and Express may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement light bulb is part number 168 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, PIAA and Eiko.

If you would like to have a brighter foot well light, install a compatible 168 LED bulb.

The only tool needed to access and replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing.

Light Housing Removed
Push Old Bulb Out of Socket
Old # 168 Bulb Removed
Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch at the top of the lens cover and gently pry out the light housing.

Push the base of the old bulb out of the socket with the flathead screwdriver.

Push In New # 168 Bulb
Re-Insert Wires First
Pop In Light Housing
Push a new number 168 bulb straight in to the socket.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 2825, 194, W5W or a compatible LED unit.
