I wonder if I can change the headlight bulbs by hand from the engineroom. Without removing the grill at all? Is it difficult or easy? Which bulbs are rekommended? Have anyone tried? Or is it a case for the dealer?

Best Regards

Headlamp bulbs are changed inside engine compartment with no problem, and parking lamp bulbs, too. Only the side marker lamps require the grill removal. I would go with some aftermarket bulb since regular factory bulbs leave a lot to be desired in way of brightness.

Check out this Link as to replacing front bulbs. Good Luck!

Hello again!
The new headlight bulbs are now in place... Much brighter light compare with the stock. I Can recommend Osram R9008. Looks almost like Xenon lights. Very nice...

Dodge Nitro Headlight Bulb Replacement


Published on Jul 23, 2012

A quick video on how to change the headlights for a Dodge Nitro. My Dodge Nitro is a 2008, but they should all be about the same since there aren't any major differences between the years.

WARNING: make sure not to touch the glass of the new headlight. The oils on your skin may cause it to burst under the hot operating temperatures of the light bulb.
