There is a small slot at the back of the lamp cover you need to insert and pry forward with a flat screw driver to release the cover and access the lamp - a small tab that lock in place.

Changing the interior map light


The bulbs is replaced from the back of the overhead console with 1/4 turn bulb holders.

the overhead console ( non rail version ) is held up with spring clips.

Open the rear compartment, and grab the rear corners and pull down 1 at a time. They are very hard to pull the 1st few times. Once you have the read released, there is another set of spring clips in the front, so be careful how far down you pull the rear, until the front is released.

Once you can see the back of the overhead console, you will see the 1/4 turn bulb holders for the map and interior lights.

Replacing the front dome light


The front dome lamp & map lamps are replaced from the back, they are 1/4 turn bulb holders.

The overhead console ( non rail ) is held on with spring clips. Open the rear compartment, and in each corner grab the console with your thumb and index finger and pull down. The 1st time you remove it, it is very hard to pull down, the springs are very stiff.

The rail system, the service manual says to pull the overhead bins 1st, then pull the consoles out ( also spring clips )

How to remove map light cover


The map light cover is part of the over head console.

For the non overhead rail system, open the rear compartment, and grab in the rear corners, pulling down. 4 or 6 spring clips hold it up.
1st time is the hardest to get it down, part spring tension, part worried about breaking something. It is a hard pull, but will come down.

Once you have the overhead console down, you will see the gray 1/4 turn bulb holders installed from the back. These are 2 element bulbs, take one with to the parts sore.

2007 Chrysler TOWN AND COUNTRY.. OVRHEAD MAP


I had the same problem on my 07 and it turned out to be caused by the bulbs getting too hot and melting the surrounding plastic which opened the circuit powering them. I was able to fix the problem by removing the bulbs and cleaning the sockets allowing the bulbs to seat correctly. The lenses snap off to give you access to the bulbs. If you are not familiar with how interiors of cars come apart, I would not suggest doing it as you may crack the lens.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE BULBS FOR THE MAP LIGHTS AND THE CIGAR ASH RECEIVER WITHOUT BREAKING ANYTHING.


To change the bulbs for the map lights you need to first remove the screw located on the overhead console which is towards the front of the console (towards the front window). Then you need to pry down on the rear of the console. Once the console is removed you then need to remove the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.

As for the bulbs for the ashtray I am not sure if there is one.
