1/4 Turn Counterclockwise

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 a burnt out front turn signal or front side marker light bulb.

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 light bulb part numbers are as follows: Front Turn Signal # 7440A (or WY21W) and Front Side Marker # 194.

No tools are needed to access and replace the light bulbs.

The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the side of the SUV with the burnt out light bulb.

Rotate the tan plastic base of the front turn signal light bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it straight out of the housing.

Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket.

The small black and grey plastic side marker light bulb socket is located near the outer edge of the housing.

For better access to the socket, I recommend disconnecting the green plastic power plug for the LED light strip.

Press the release tab on the green electrical connector before pulling it straight off.

Then rotate the side marker bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it straight out of the housing.
