Drivers side DRL replacement???

The other day while sitting idle in traffic and I noticed in the reflection of the car ahead of me that my driver's side DRL was not on. No, I didn't have the turn signal on... Once home, I opened the hood to check it out but there is no easy access to the headlight assembly. Anybody out there know of any tricks besides what I "think" I have to do...remove the air box assembly to gain access? Just thought I'd ask before I do something I don't really have to do! Any threads, links or vid's out there? Thanks guys!!!

Hi,

It's no easy, but yes you can, below a link here in the forum:
http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...hlight=drl+led

In my case I disassembled the Air filter box after that very easy. good luck

Re: Drivers side DRL replacement???

I would imagine that it is a warranty item, so go to the dealer, have some free coffee and donuts.

Apparently they dont change drl bulbs for free after 12k miles.......go figure!!!!!........Trust me I tried. The did show me how to pull the airbox and top trim piece. Took 10 minutes but still PIA for just a bulb!
Also spray some silicon spray on the three grommets and the box pops right out!! I couldnt get it off at first because the grommets were dry and rubber was tight againts the plast stud.

Well that certainly doesn't build customer satisfaction or good will for Chrysler.

Most manufacturers only cover light bulbs, wiper blades, wheel alignment for 12 months or 12,000 miles.

There is a cover in the wheel well that you remove. Takes you right to the lightbulb. Never would have found that one.
