This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2017, 2018, 2019 and perhaps also the 2020 and 2021 model years) Chrysler Pacifica minivan in changing a burnt out fog light bulb located in the front bumper cover.

Owners of other FCA (Fiat Chrysler America) vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Charger, Challenger, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Compass, Renegade, Patriot, RAM 1500, RAM ProMaster City, Fiat 500 and Fiat 124 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A compatible replacement halogen fog light bulb is part number H11.

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, install some H11 LED bulbs.

The tools needed to access and replace the fog light bulbs include an 8mm socket, a 1/4" drive ratchet and a flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Try to avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or anything greasy in the wheel well area.

If you do get the new bulb dirty, wipe it clean with a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol.
