Changing headlights in 2014 Cherokee

Hi - Has anyone had to do this? One of my headlights changed color and was deemed bad by the dealer. Still under warranty, they changed the bulb. Claimed it was HID - which I think not - $400 price tag!!! Huh??/

So has anyone ever changed the bulb? Cost? Through the wheel well? Any advice would be cool - thinking down the road when my warranty runs out.....


Thanks - Chris

So did they charge you the $400? Do you have HID?

A standard globe generally wont change colour and a HID will ocasionally go bad.

Still under warranty so no charge on the repair. I don't know if I have HID - HID was listed on the dealer sheet...but I thought these were halogen? I agree I've never seen a halogen change colors...so I really don't know what these are....haha...kinda funny.

I found this - Bi-Function Halogen Projector Headlamps - As I thought - Halogen. I think the dealer was wrong with saying they are HID. And $400 is no way the cost of a Halogen.

Mine is a 2014 Limited. I have HID's. I think it all depends on your model and options. The dealer will charge by the reported VIN # on the repair. There is no way FCA is going to pay to replace something under warranty that is not on the vehicle.
Sometimes the dealer cost of a repair is high only because of part/assembly that has to be replaced.

Hi - How do you know that you indeed have HID's? If you look at any of the FCA info on 2014 Cherokee's I've seen zero where they offer or talk about HID's. Only the Projection Lamps. Curious how you know! Thanks!!!

HIDs were part of the Luxury Group in 2014/2015: HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE HEADLAMPS (LMP) - 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features, Options & Pricing.

BTW, I had my passenger side HID replaced under warranty because it had turned to an amber color.

Re: Changing headlights in 2014 Cherokee

Holy Smoke Batman! I pulled out the sticker on my KL and guess what....Bi-Xenon HID Headlamps (luxury group)... Wow - Thanks a bunch for getting my mind working again! haha. My KL has everything so after reading your post I thought, wait a minute...you must have this. So I guess I was wrong.

Again - THANKS!
