Insert Flathead Screwdriver

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chrysler 200 sedan in changing a burnt dome light bulb (also known as the rear passenger courtesy reading lights).

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, 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 2825 (or "W5W").

You can also use brighter 2825 LED light bulbs.

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

Plastic Tab - Rear Edge
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, I recommend either covering the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or use a plastic pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the tool in between the inner edge of the two lens covers.

Gently pry out the lens cover for the burnt out light bulb.

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

You may need to re-insert the tool in to another section of the lens cover and pry again.

Don't pry out the rear edge of the lens cover. There is a plastic tab on that edge holding the lens cover in place.

Set the lens cover aside in a safe place.

Pull Out Old Light Bulb
If the old light bulb was recently turned on, be careful when you remove it. The bulb might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Grasp the old light bulb with your thumb and forefinger before pulling it straight out of the socket.
