Pull Out Plastic Fasteners
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Dodge Journey SUV in changing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles with similar fog light housings such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500 and Ram C/V Tradesman may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement fog light bulb for the 2010 to 2014 model years is part number 2504 (or Phillips 12276 PSX24W). The bulb is available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, ACDelco, Philips and PIAA. (The 2009 Journey uses the # 9145 fog light bulbs.)

The tools needed to access the fog light bulbs include a flathead screwdriver and/or a pair of needle nose pliers.

3 Fasteners Removed
Pull Back Wheel Well Liner
Look In To Fog Light
Move to the front wheel by the burnt out fog light bulb that you would like to replace.

Remove the three black plastic pop rivet fasteners along the outer edge of the wheel well liner or "splash guard".

To remove each fastener, first pry out the round center piece to unlock it and then pull out the entire fastener.

Carefully pull back the wheel well liner to access the fog light bulb.

Reach in and squeeze the two light tan colored plastic retaining clips on the sides of the old bulb to release it from the socket.

(Do not pry out the clips on the old bulb, instead push them in towards each other.)

Press the release tab on the power plug and disconnect it from the base of the old bulb.

Push a new # 2504 bulb straight in to the socket until the two retaining clips click securely in to place.

The 2504 bulb is also known as PSX24W such as the Philips 12276.

Push the power plug straight on to the base of the new bulb until it clicks securely in to place.
