    these bulbs last for a very long time. they plug right in with no issues and click back into the light housing. I have used these for years and they are great. I usually have these in my inventory, but had to get some more for my truck. You won't be dissapointed with these. I would recommend not touching them with your bare hands. Not sure it matters on these, but I have had some blow prematurely because of the skin oil on the bulb. I just grab a rag or towel and stick them in to make sure. Good luck installing on your application.

    Had to replace this on my 2005 Cadillac CTS and boy was it a chore. But once completed, it worked like a charm. Thanks again to Advanced Auto for the part availibility, and the quick in store pick up option. Makes shopping so much easier.

                            Hi Tom, glad to assist you! Upon research I found that there are slight variations with the vehicle fit applications between the part# 3157 LL and part# 3057 LL. However, some applications do match up with both bulb specifications. To assist you further please provide the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle.

                            A:

                            With respect to your inquiry on replacing the tail light bulb with the Sylvania Long Life Incandescent Mini Bulb - Part No. 3157 LL on your 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 follow these steps: Open the tailgate to access the taillight assembly attachment screws. Then remove the two screws holding the unit in place, using the Phillips screwdriver. The screws are located near the tailgate latch mechanism. You must pull the assembly away from the truck body to access the rear of the unit. Then grasp the brake-light bulb socket and twist it counterclockwise a 1/4 turn and pull it out of the assembly. The brake light is in the uppermost socket. Pull the burned-out bulb from the socket and replace it with a new one. Insert the socket into the assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it. Return the assembly to its proper location and replace the two screws. Repeat the steps on the opposite side, if necessary. Finally test the lights. This part comes with a W2.5x16q type base and is an exact fit for your Silverado truck.
