Just get a buddy to help. A pro could do it in less than an hour. Using the link below took me little over an hour... Most of that was deciphering the instructions

I changed my bulbs in my '15 Limited WK2. The first run through took me a long time. Now I can do it pretty quickly and alone. The first time it's good to have a friend with you to assist.

Look at link 2 posts up. Is wk2 jeeps
Some people have luck changing bulbs thru the hood, but is difficult as you could bend the tabs that hold the bulb in. To remove the facia is a lot easier than the directions look. Now I know to do it, shouldn't take more than 45 minutes including putting tools away

Thanks buddy, I saw that but was hoping that was for full headlight swaps. I plan on doing my HID bulbs Osram 5500k at the same time as my SRT fog lights. Just get it over with. Probably install my vleds triton v3 tail lights then too lol. Got a bunch of shit to do and no time to do it

When you pull the fascia off you can swap the headlights.. full access makes it easy, I brought my headlight assemblies into the house cause it was cold when I did the job

Installed my superbrightleds natural white 194 bulbs. Perfect color!! I am extremely happy with the bulbs. There is no hint of blue whatsoever like my osram 194 bulbs had.

The yellow on the seats is from the factory LED map light. I might consider changing that out in not sure yet.

Looks good. So now if you let the car time out and try and turn one of the new bulbs on, does it go on or do you have to turn on the forward yellow bulb first for it to turn on? I've noticed that the sun visor vanity lights (LED) also won't turn on until the original yellow overhead console light is on first.
Maybe the canbus bulbs are the answer? And if so, then I guess I'll have to change all the interior bulbs that I changed to LED's.

I tested this with mine for James. It worked for me with the ones I bought for my 2015 HA

You know I saw your video and I'm not sure you waited long enough. When you get some time try it again but wait a little longer lol. I know I said wait till the push start button goes off, but I found if I do it right after that goes off mine still worked. Ah well whatever it probably doesn't matter.

Interestingly enough these new canbus bulbs did NOT fix that issue. I really thought they would, but I guess it's not a huge deal anyway as it's not all that often that you are just sitting in the car at night with the car off which is as far as I know the only time this issue would show up. Otherwise the bulbs work every time you press them when the car is on.

Been sitting in my jeep for the past 12 minutes. Waited for everything to turn off. About 8 minutes later flipped open the vanity and it turned on. All other lights do too
