SOURCE: How to replace blub in headlight

The entire headlight comes out from the exterior of the car. When you open your hood, there is a lever that you need to slide up. The light will then pop out and you will be able to replace the bulb and then pop the light back in. You will have to push hard inorder to get the lever to go back down. We had better luck with two of us doing it... one pushing... the other working the lever.

How to change head light bulbs on a dodge caliber


Park the Dodge Caliber on a flat paved or concrete surface. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the side opposite the headlight you are replacing. In other words, if you are replacing the left headlight, turn the wheel all the way to the right. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch.
  • Step 2 Place a wheel chock behind one of the rear tires.
  • Step 3 Open the hood. This is to allow some light to reach down into the engine compartment.
  • Step 4 Raise the front quarter panel of the side you need to replace the headlight on with the floor jack and place the jack stand under the front frame rail on that side.
  • Step 5 Remove the fender well plugs using the plastic plug puller tool. You do not have to remove the entire fender well cover, but the more plugs you remove, the more access it will give you to the headlight assembly.
  • Step 6 Unplug the headlight switch. Make sure you are unplugging the headlight which will be the inboard plug.
  • Step 7 Turn the headlight bezel a quarter turn counterclockwise and extract the bulb and bezel.
  • Step 8 Insert the new headlight into the bezel, being careful not to touch the glass bulb.
  • Step 9 Insert the bezel and headlight into the headlight assembly and turn a quarter turn clockwise to lock it into place.
  • Step 10 Plug the wire connector into the headlight. This would be a good time to get up and go test the light to make sure it's working.
  • Step 11

    Replacing a headlight


    go to your parts store and purchase the new halegeon blub. READ very carefully the instructions on the box. DO NOT TOUCH the new blub lens.

    Carefully pull and twist out the old blub and remove it from its base. Using the special material or a glove, install the new blub in the base, and then carefully insert it back into the headlight shell.
