Re: 2016 jeep high altitude D3S headlight upgrade

My passenger side headlamp would not stay on. Suspected short in bulb or connection, but dealership had to replace entire assembly under warranty. They said bulb and all were all one assembly and that the bulb could not be replaced without the entire headlamp assy.

What?? That's not true, and I can't imagine any competent dealer would say that!

Beats me. They said they had to get assembly. My ro shows they replaced the assembly. So wasnt trying to pass off bad info, just what I experienced. And my headlamp now works as it should have from factory. 2016 ha

My dealership is saying the same thing to me on my 2016 JGC HA, anyone else find something different WRT being able to change out the bulb only?

On the drivers side Simply remove the airbox and you will be able to see the back of the lamp. There is a round cover on the back of the lamp. Twist to turn and remove it. You now have access to the bulb. It has a rings that you must twist to release tension to the d3s base....then the d3s bulb pulls out. The passenger side I just unplugged and re ml over the pcm to make room. Same after that as the driver side

Re: 2016 jeep high altitude D3S headlight upgrade

Thanks, but I think that the 2016 had a change where the cover is no longer present (IE can't remove the bulb) and the headlight and bulb are all one unit... I have a 2016 and so didn't the OP and the second poster... I agree with the third person, hard to believe that FCA would engineer a headlight where you couldn't change the bulb...

Awaiting verification from someone on JG to tell me that I am right or wrong...
