This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2017, 2018, 2019 and probably also the 2020 and 2021 model years) Chrysler Pacifica minivan in changing a burnt out low beam, high beam or front turn signal light bulb in the headlight housings.

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.

The compatible replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # 9005, High Beam 9005 and Front Turn Signal # PWY24WNA.

The only tool you might need is a pair of needle nose pliers to help turn a stubborn front turn signal light bulb socket.

The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the side of the vehicle with the burnt out headlight housing.

The low beam light bulb is located near the outer edge of the headlight housing.

The lens for the low beam resembles a cloudy eye.

Gently pull back the rubber flat that covers the area just behind the headlight housing.

You can wedge the cover in place behind the wiper fluid filler tube to keep it in place.

Rotate the round black plastic dust cap 1/4 turn in the counterclockwise direction before pulling it straight out.

Set the dust cover aside in a safe place.

You'll need to at least partially remove the black plastic cover at the front of the engine bay that covers the radiator and the headlight housings.

Pry up the center part of the pop rivet fasteners to unlock them.

Then pry out the base of the fasteners.

Since the turn signal bulb is somewhat difficult to replace, I recommend testing the new bulb before you re-install it into the housing.

To test the new bulb, turn on the hazard signals.
