They are using ball & socket connections on a lot of Chrysler products these days. Keep gently prying with a rag covered tool and it should pop out, it may take some effort as these ball & socket connections can get dirt/sand it them and make the hard to separate. I had a Jeep Liberty, same thing, I thought I was going to break it so much effort was needed to get the assembly out. Just be careful.

Why would the break light in my car be coming on? It doesn't do it all the time. My breaks are working fine. No grinding or anything. It will just beep and come on sometimes while Im driving. I have a...


The warning brake light has a dual purpose. Check your brake fluid and check your brake light bulbs. If it is low on fluid, it will trigger the light. If the bulb is lose or weak, it will also trigger the light. Good luck!

2005 dodge stratus. Driver's side headlight. There is NO room to take the bulb out. Is there an easyish way to accomplish this?


On some cars there are pull tabs towards the rear of the headlamp assembly. They may be sticking up thru the radiator support. If so, Pull them sharply straight up, and headlamp assembly will almost fall out.

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.

How do i change the left headlight on a 2002 dodge stratus


You should have two long star-patterned screws that run through the brackets of it......unscrew thoss and the headlight assembly should pop out and then you can change the bulb or the headlight assembly at that time.

How do you change a headlight in a 2002 Dodge Stratus?


There are two bolts that need to be removed. You can identify them by the washer sitting underneath them. Remove the plug going into the lamp. Then, pull out (it will probably have to be forceful) the entire casing. You will see a large black ring. Remove this and then you should be able to pull out the light plug. Insert the new bulb and just put everything back together.

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.
