Question about 2004 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

I need to replace the driver's side headlight bulb on my 2004 Dodge Neon. I've been told the entire front grill has to be removed in order to do this. Is this right?

    No you do not have to remove the front grill. You take it to the Chrysler dealership and $26.00 later you have a new headlight bulb.

No, you can easily reach your hand behind without removing anything and the bulb can be removed and replaced. If your hand is too large then their are two screws on the top of the light assembly that once removed you can pull the hole assembly out and change the bulb

How to change a 2004 GMC envoy front light


Drivers side- stick your hand down by the alternator and over behind the headlight. You'll feel a 3" round rubber boot, just pull this off. Twist the bulb out and replace it.

Passenger side- remove the air cleaner top, at this point, you'll have a lot of room to remove the rubber boot and replace the bulb.

The other method is to remove the grill, but pulling on this can break or crack the grill easily, so I choose this way.

Do I need to remove entire grill to change front left headlight?


If they are sealed beam headlights then you have to remove the grille in order to gain access to the screws to change the light. If they are halogen bulbs, they are accessed from behind the headlight. Held in by a retaining ring.

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.

How do you get in to change the headlight bulb on the 2004 Dodge Dakota


Remove the single torx screw holding the parking lamp assembly to the headlamp assembly. Remove the parking lamp bulb and sockets from the main assembly and set aside. Remove the three bolts holding the headlamp assembly. Pull the headlamp assembly forward off of the alignment pin and disconnect the harness from the back of the bulbs. Turn the bulb holder and pull the bulb out. Replace in reverse. Total replacement should take 15 minutes. Gregg

Thanks for the tips Gregg! Indeed, don't work anywhere but in front of the grill. Notes from my adventure:
You'll need a t-10 torx skinny screwdriver, and a 10mm socket wrench/driver.
Find the little torx screw near the bottom side of the headlight nearest the wheel and remove it. Tug and wiggle on the turn signal unit and it'll come loose. You'll find three 10mm bolts that hold the headlight unit in. More tug and wiggle and the unit falls free. After bulb replacement (don't touch the glass or finger oils can cause it break under high heat) replace the headlight unit. You'll see little plastic guides that the signal unit slides into- replace the unit and the tiny screw that holds it all in place. Replace the other bulb too, the second one takes a tenth of the time :)

No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!

Driver's side Headlight Bulb Replacement


Do you mean the entire headlight assembly or just the bulb?
If it's the entire headlamp look at the new one to see where the fastening points are, the grill may have to be removed and also the parking lamp lens, if it's just the bulb it's easy Open your hood look at the back of the headlight assembly and twist the bulb holder ring to release it. Good Luck To You

Need to replace driver's side headlight in 2004 dodge SX2.0


No. Just twist black locking retainer about half turn counterclockwise (left), remove it & wiggle bulb out. replace bulb without touching glass part of it which shortens the life if you do. Add a little vaseline to Orange O ring, to make it pop back in, after you make sure tabs on bulb are aligned with ones in the hole of housing. You may need to wiggle it back in too. Put retaining ring back on, turn clockwise until it locks, plug wire connector back in to back of bulb, until it snapps onto catch on bulb and your good to go.
