Why would you change a bulb on a GMC Envoy?

The most common reason for people replacing the bulbs on their car is due to a burned one. Having at least one non-working light on your vehicle can either be unsafe to drive, especially in night conditions or will get you in trouble with the law.

The second reason is to upgrade them. Even though the GMC Envoy is not an old car with an old set of lights around it, there are quite a lot of aftermarket upgrade kits that can improve the older bulbs that were installed from the factory.

What are the advantages of upgrading the bulbs on a GMC Envoy?

There are many advantages to upgrading the bulbs from the stock ones to LED. The two most common are power consumption and longevity.

Power consumption in a car might not be something that a lot of people think about, but it is crucial. As your vehicle is running, the alternator has a task for recharging the battery and keep all the electrical components working. Replacing the bulbs with LED means that they will consume less power, and the alternator will not be working too much to power them expanding its longevity.

Speaking of longevity, we come to the second advantage. LED lights, in general, will last much more than any other type due to their design. On average, LED bulbs will have several thousands of hours rated working lifespan meaning you might need to change them only once.

Replacing a headlight bulb on GMC Envoy

Replacing the headlamps on your GMC Envoy is not as complicated as it seems. Disconnect the power from the car battery before you begin.

Remove the two plastic clamps that hold the entire headlight assembly and disconnect the two cables. Remove the plastic cover in the middle of the headlight, and you will reach the bulb. Unplug the old bulb, plug in the new one and repeat the steps in reverse order. While you have the assembly out, you can replace the front indicator bulbs.

Do you need to replace all bulbs with LEDs at once?

No. You can change as many or as little bulbs as you want to.
