2015 Cherokee Headlights
Fog Light - Lower Bumper
Turn Front Wheels
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and probably also the refreshed 2018 model year) Jeep Cherokee in changing burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper cover.

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

The compatible replacement fog light bulb part number is PSX24W.

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, choose some PSX24W LED bulbs.

The tools needed to access and replace the light bulbs include an 8mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratchet.

Plastic Wheel Well Liner
Loosen Counterclockwise
Remove 8mm Screw
The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out fog light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will help create more working room in the wheel well to access the fog light bulb housing.

Remove the three screws located along the front outer edge of the wheel well liner (or "splash guard") by turning them counterclockwise with an 8mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratchet.

Remove 2nd Screw
Bottom 3rd Screw
Remove Counterclockwise
Set the screws aside in a safe place.
Lower Screw Removed
Three 8mm Screws Removed
Pull Back Splash Guard
Gently pull back the black plastic wheel well liner to access the fog light bulb housing.

Locate the tan colored plastic base of the old fog light bulb and the dark orange plastic electrical connector near the bottom of the front bumper cover.

Squeeze together the two tabs on the tan plastic base of the old light bulb to release the retaining clips.

Pull the old light bulb straight out of the housing.


Press Release Tab
Pull Off Power Plug
Push Plug On New Bulb
Press the tab on the dark orange electrical connector before sliding the power plug straight off the base of the old light bulb.

Push the power plug on to the base of the new PSX24W light bulb until it clicks securely in to place.

Push Bulb In To Socket
New Bulb Installed
Replace Wheel Well Liner
Line up the two retaining clips on the new bulb in the proper orientation with the mounting bracket on the housing.

Push the new bulb in to the housing until the retaining clips click securely in to place.

Move the wheel well liner back in to place.

Line Up Screw Holes
Spin In Screws
Tighten Clockwise
Line up the three screw holes on the outer edge of the wheel well liner with their corresponding holes on the front bumper cover.
Replace Middle Screw
3rd Top Screw
Test New Fog Light Bulb
Replace the three 8mm screws and tighten them in the clockwise direction until they are snug.

To test the new light bulbs, turn on the headlights and then activate the fog lights.
