Subject: 2000 Headlight Replacement
IP: Logged

Message:
I was just wondering about replaceing my headlight bulbs in my 2000 dodge dakota. I never took anything apart yet but was looking at how to get at the bulbs.? I can reach one bulb(drivers side) from the back of the headlight lens but was wondering about the passenger side one, I can't get at the bulb from the back..... I was mainly concerned with removing the headlight lense without screwing up the headlight alignment. Can the headlight lens be removed without touching the alignment screws? I know it's not a big deal to realign my headlights but want to avoid it if I can.

The manual i have does not show headlight replacement.

THanks in advance

Glen

I've gotta 2001 and i know on mine you can take the head light off without changing the alignment screws. On mine the alignment screws go into a headlight brace and which bolts onto the truck. you can take the headlight off there and then put it back in without changeing the alignment.

Well, you can get to the back of the Passenger headlight....if you take off your stock air intake tube. Thats what I do on my '02 Dak, 4.7L 5spd. Its not that bad, just takes a little patience, and it eventually sits right in. Have you found any 9007 bulbs that actually give out some "bluish" light, like they all say they do?

Dakota has it right but if you work hard enough, you can get to it and change it with out removing the tube too. I have some big ole hands and have managed to change mine without removing the tube...it was hard but I managed.

One little torx head srew holds the turn signals in. After loosening it, the turn signal assembly will slide out. There are 3 or 4 nuts holding the headlight assembly in place. Take those out and the whole assembly will go to grocery store with ya without upsetting your allignment. Good luck!
