Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 200, 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500 500X or 500L, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Front Turn Signal # 7507 or PY21W and DRL (Daytime Running Lamp) # 7528 or P21/5W.

The tools needed to access and replace the light bulbs include a Phillips head screwdriver and a flathead screwdriver.

Loosen Phillips Head Screw
Pry Out Plastic Screw

The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out front turn signal or DRL light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will help create more working room in the wheel well.

Locate the rectangular shaped plastic access cover on the front part of the wheel well liner.

There are two black plastic screws securing the access panel in place.

Loosen the screws by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver.

If you have trouble removing the plastic screws, use a small flathead screwdriver to pry them out.
