Gently Pry Out Housing

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & possibly also the 2016 model year) Dodge Challenger in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement bulb is part number 562 or 567 which are available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

Other "rigid loop" base festoon bulbs that should be compatible include the # 561, 564 and the 212-2.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing.
