There is a black ring that you have to remove first, and then you can remove and replace the bulb. You have to look close, as the area is tight, and it's hard to see the ring.

gas gauge sticks either full or empty This is a known problem with Chevy's that they will not recall on. I had same problem with my 2000 Blazer. Had to replace fuel pump / gauge assembly in tank. It took a couple of hours to do, but was worth the headache having a gauge that works now, No more running out of gas or watching mileage.
