Chevrolet Cruze Headlight Bulbs Replacement Guide – 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 GM Chevrolet Cruze in changing a burnt out combination low beam / high beam headlight bulb or the front turn signal light bulb. (The front side marker and parking lights are LED bulbs that should last the life time of the car.)

Owners of other General Motors vehicles from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac and Holden such as the Sonic, Spark, Malibu, Impala, Volt, Bolt, Camaro, Corvette, Trax, Equinox, Blazer, Suburban, Tahoe, Traverse, Colorado, Silverado, Express, TrailBlazer, Encore, Regal TourX, Envision, Enclave, LaCrosse, Cascada, Sierra, Canyon, Acadia, Terrain, Yukon, Savana, XT4, XT5, XT6, Escalade, CT5, CTS-V, XTS, CT6, ATS, Astra and Commodore may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low & High Beam Headlight Bulb # 9005 and Front Turn Signal # 7444NA.


If you would like to have brighter lights that will also last a lot longer before burning out, install some 9005 LED headlight bulbs and amber colored front turn signal 7444NA LED bulbs.

Please check the part numbers on your old bulbs before purchasing new parts or use the Amazon Part Finder website to verify the correct bulbs for your car’s model year and trim level.

No tools are required to access any of the bulbs in either the driver side or passenger side headlight housings.

You may need a flat head screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool to pull back a stubborn plastic retaining clip on the headlight bulb electrical connectors.

The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the side of the car with the burnt out headlight bulb.
