Remove old bulbs, then put new bulbs in.

Remove the bottom three screws on the lower front of the wheel well liner and pull liner back then reach in and change bulbs. No need to remove tires.

What is the part number and where did you get them? Do they look brighter than factory? I would also like better bulbs for my 2013 zl1. Thanks

Bulbs came from Gen5DIY.
They have several different bulbs that will work.
I chose the ones that most match the headlights,will try to post part # later.

T20 Driver is the correct driver to get those screws out by the way.

Link to thread where I posted pics of my car with the above bulbs. Only I got mine from JDP. As mentioned, easy install. They match very well and are brighter.

On ZL1 you remove the 3 screws in the wheel well and the 3 under the bumper to release the wheel well, and give you room, on the ZL1 they come out front and go onto the pumper.

Phasetek makes a simple wire kit for $ 15 that will let your DRLS run as fogs at night too.

Just make sure it is specific to the ZL1 or your fogs won't work. I got my harness from gen5diy. See two posts above.

No need to remove the "under bumper" screws. The three wheel well screws will give you enough room to put your hand and forearm in to change the room. I've done it several times.

Drive up on some ramps and you can get to them front under the front bumper. Much easier than going through wheel well.
