Drivers side headlight bulb replacement


  1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

  2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
  3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
  4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
  5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
  6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
  7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram


On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

There are 2 screws one the frame above the headlight after you open the engine hood. One screw has a long shaft, both need to be removed and will release the headlight housing. Next you need to pull the headlight assembly out which might mean you have to push down on the plastic surrounding the assembly. Once the assembly is out all you need to do is pull up on the clip that holds the wiring and pull it off. There is a plastic ring around the lightbulb that you need to screw off and then you'll be able to pull out the bulb. Make sure you have a new HB5/9007 type replacement bulb, and do not touch the glass on the bulb with your fingers, if you do take a soft cloth and wipe the glass to remove any oils. After you place the new bulb in the assembly, put everything back in reverse of how you removed it and you'll be finished.
