2016 Renegade Side Mirror
Pry Off Plastic Cover
Release Retaining Clips
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and possibly also the 2019 and 2020 model years) Jeep Renegade SUV in changing a burnt out front side marker light bulb located in the front side view mirror housing.

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 miniature wedge base light bulb part number is 2827 (or WY5W).

You can also use a brighter 2827 LED unit.

The only tool needed to access and replace the light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Continue Releasing Clips
Pry Bottom Edge
Bottom Inner Edge
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, I recommend either covering the tip of your screwdriver or instead use a plastic pry bar tool.

Gently pry off the plastic cover on the front of the side view mirror housing.

Start by prying in between the round frame that surrounds the mirror and the rounded plastic cover.

You may need to re-insert the tool in several places to fully remove the plastic cover.

Try to avoid using excessive force. The cover should pop off relatively easily.

Pull Off Plastic Cover

If you would like to have brighter side marker lights, install some compatible 2827 LED bulbs.

Test New Light Bulb
Re-Attach Bulb Housing
Secure Retaining Clips
I recommend installing the new side marker light bulb before re-assembling the side view mirror assembly.

Push the light housing back in to place on the mirror.
