Click here
the link above will take you to a video that shows you how to pull the entire dome light and all the other fittings down giving you access to the bulbs you need to replace.

now from what i can remember their are two types of fittings on one type you pull the whole dome light down you can get flat bladed screwdriver under the edges and just pry it down as its only clipped in

now for the map lights if you have a look at these you should see around the edge of the lense a little bit with a gap in it if you see this then get a small flat bladed screw driver and pry the covers off this then gives you access to the bulbs

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Hi!!

Using a small flat head screw driver, carefully pry the map light lens away from the base and pull the bulb straight out.

Good Luck!!

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.

How do I remove the overhead console in my Ford 1-50 to change a light bulb. I ordered the bulb from the Ford house, but they want a small fortune to replace the bulb


With the overhead console ( non rail system ), open the sun glass bin, and grab each corner in the back, and pull down.

The overhead is held on with 4 or 6 spring clips, and pulls straight down.

The bulbs are 1/4 twist sockets installed from the back of the overhead console.

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.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE FRONT DOME-MAP LIGHT HOUSING


For the non rail system overhead console :

There are spring clips holding the console to the roof.

Open the compartment, and grasp each corner, and pull down. This will take a moderate amount of pull to release the spring clips.

There are 4 or 6 spring clips holding the console to the ceiling, at the least the center spring clips will release when you pull down on the rear.
remove the front held in place by the spring clips. There are 2 connectors for the overhead console, these have ~ 6" if slack in them.

From this point, you can remove the connectors, or you will see the gray bulb holders for the map / interior lamps. These are 1/4 twist bulb holders.

Replace spark plugs 2004 dodge intrepid


__________________
Changing Spark Plugs

First off, on this model you don't have plug wires, you have coil packs with a boot and coil connected to the pack. The boot slides on the tops of the spark plug. The good thing about this is that you don't have to mark each wire to its location.

So to replace the plugs you need to disconnect the electrical connector to the coil pack and then unbolt the two bolts that mount the pack down, then remove the pack.

Next with a ratchet, an extension and a special spark plug socket, which has an insulator inside to protect the porcelain from getting cracked, remove the spark plugs.

Next step is to replace the plug, usually I slide off the boot from the coil pack and then remove the coil from inside the boot and slide the boot over the spark plug and start to thread the plug back in. Using this method allows to you feel if you are threading the plug in right. Then with a torque wrench you would torque the spark plug to the specs for the type of engine you have.

3.2/3.5L Engine (20 ft-lbs)
2.7L Engine (13 ft-lbs)

Next reinstall the coil pack with the two mounting bolts, it is only necessary to hand tigthen the two bolts. Then plug back in the electrical connector and continue this process on the next 5 spark plugs.

Changing Dome Light

To remove the map light bulbs you need to first remove the overhead console.

To do this you need to remove the screw at the front of the overhead console (which is more towards the front windshield).

Next you need to pry down on the rear of the overhead console and then disconnect the electrical connectors.

Then, with the overhead console pulled down, pull of the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.

Installation is the reverse of the removal process.
