Are these bulb replacements, or did you replace your whole lamp assembly?

On my 2007 Nitro I found that the tail lamp bulbs were all (3 on each side) 4057s. With these new types of push-in bulbs you can no longer look for a broken filament as in the past to see if the bulb is inoperative. If the base of the bulb near the glass is discolored like mine, that may point to a defective bulb. Just to make sure I ran a continuity checker on all three bulbs and found that the brake lamp bulb had one filament that would not read, but the others did. I replaced all three anyway with the Long Lasting (LL) 4057 and kept the two other bulbs for the future use. What amazes me is that if you took it to my dealer's service department, I'm sure that they would do the same thing but charge you not only for the bulbs, but one hour labor.

So now-a-days that would be over $100 to repair a broken stop lamp bulb. Guess that may be less that a traffic ticket, but not by much!


So if your Nitro is still under the original factory warranty (3/36) and ANY light bulb fails have them replace it free under warranty.
