This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and probably also the refreshed 2018 model year) Jeep Cherokee in changing burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper cover.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and RAM vehicles such as the Compass, Renegade, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Patriot, 500, Town & Country, 200, 300, Pacifica, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster Van may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement fog light bulb part number is PSX24W. If you want brighter fog lights, buy LED units.

The tools needed to access and replace the light bulbs include an 8mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratchet.

Remove 8mm Screw
The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out fog light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will help create more working room in the wheel well to access the fog light bulb housing.

Remove the three screws located along the front outer edge of the wheel well liner (or "splash guard") by turning them counterclockwise with an 8mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratchet.
