This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Jeep Patriot SUV in changing the dual filament low and high beam bulb or the front turn signal light bulb in the headlight housings.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and RAM vehicles such as the Compass, Renegade, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, 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 replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low & High Beam # H13 and Front Turn Signal # 3757A (or 3757NAK or 3757NA).

No tools are needed to replace the low/high beam bulbs. To access and replace the front turn signal, you'll need 7mm socket with a 1/4" drive ratcheting wrench.
