I need to get at the headlight bulb to change it. I don't know how
Dodge Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 6 months ago

These are a little tricky to get to, the whole headlamp assembly has to come out, you can get to the bolts on the bottom, put some paper in the socket and jam it onto the bolt, or a magnetic socket is best, Check this video out, it's a pretty good one and shows you how to get at the bolts on the bottom. I believe they are 8mm or 10mm, I get to them with a swivel 1/4 inch socket, but you can use a straight socket.

You can get to them without pulling the headlamp assembly, at least I couldn't.

Video says you can get to it from the back, but I know I pulled the drivers side out, maybe passenger side has a little bit more room, if you can't get to from the back though, the whole headlamp assembly will have to come out. it's not that bad, took me about 15 minutes to get it out I think. Does that help answer your question? thank you.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
