SOURCE: changing front turn signal 2006 dodge truck

Yes you do. You have to take the whole assembly off the truck to fix the problem. I tried wesbingham3's way and it was a dead-end. I then had to call a Dodge dealer and they told me that you had to take the whole assembly off the truck which turns out easier than it seems. All you have to do is remove the two bolts that are by the radiator and pull the assembly straight off the truck. It helps when pulling it off if you already have the headlight out of the assembly (which can be removed from atop of the assembly). Once you get the assembly off the truck then all you have to do is change the bulb and replace the assembly. Once I figured it out it only took me 5 minutes.

SOURCE: How do you get in to change the headlight bulb on

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 :)

SOURCE: how to change head lamp bulbs on a 2007 Dodge

Check your owner's manual. To replace headlight bulbs you open the hood and then behind the headlights there is a piece that either twists off or pops off. It will have the headlight wires running thru or under it. Pop or twist this off and you should see the back of the headlight bulb. Pull the bulb out. Slide the old bulb off the connector and being carefull not to touch the glass part of the new bulb (use a clean rag to hold it) as it will hasten the new bulb in burning out if you get grease or oil from your hand on it, stick the new bulb into the connector and repeat the process to install

Blinker come on but don't flash bulbs and flasher are ok

this usually means you have a turn signal bulb that is burned out. The blinker measures the power to the bulbs and that controls the flash rate. If a bulb is burned out it does not flash.

Also if you changed your bulbs to LED the current draw is less and could cause the same situation

1995 Dodge Dakota signal light and brake lights quit

I had the same problem that the brake light / turn signal on the right side didn't work (in the 2006 Dodge Caravan it's the same bulb). After a long search I found the problem: There was corrosion on the contact of the bulb assembly. After scraping off the corrosion everything works now.

Blinker on 1998 dodge Dakota don't work but flashers do replaced blinker switch

Most likely this is the result of a faulty turn signal flasher relay. This is located in the fuse box at the end of the dash. Also, be sure and test all your fuses with a test light or volt meter.
