SHARAE23, I understand you do not have a manual. On page 5-52 of the owners manual it states: 1. Open the trunk. See Trunk on page 2-10 for more information. 2. Locate the back-up lamp bulb assembly in the trunk lid. 3. Remove the bulb socket by turning it counterclockwise. On vehicles that have a back-up lamp cover, first remove it by depressing the tab at the top. 4. Pull out the old bulb. 5. Install a new bulb. 6. Reinstall the bulb socket by aligning the tabs and turning it clockwise to secure. For more information, please email us at socialmedia@gm.com. Erica Tiffany GM Customer Care
