This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2006-2010 Dodge Charger in replacing a burnt out overhead map light bulb.

Owners of other Dodge or Chrysler vehicles such as the 300, 300C, Magnum, Challenger, Caliber, Journey, Avenger, Nitro, Durango, Grand Caravan, 200 and Town & Country minivan may also find this guide to be useful.

Replacement overhead map light bulbs from Sylvania and other manufacturers are part # 578.

To replace the bulbs, you'll need a small flathead screwdriver and possibly a pair of needle nose pliers.

Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver into the sides of the clear plastic lens covering the map light and gently pry it out.

Pull Off Metal Cover
Behind the clear plastic lens cover there is a metal reflector piece over the map light bulb. Gently pull off the cover or pry it out with the flathead screwdriver. Try to avoid bending the metal cover so that it can be re-installed properly later.
