Assemble Headlight

Turn off the Charger's engine and open the hood.

Remove the Charger's three retaining screws above the headlight assembly. At the rear of the assembly, disconnect the electrical cable by pulling it out.

Turn the retaining ring counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Pull the Charger's headlight socket out and rotate the bulb counterclockwise to pull it out of the socket. Replace the bulb if necessary.

Place the bulb back into the socket and twist it clockwise. Place the socket back into the assembly and place the retaining ring over the socket, rotating it clockwise to secure it to the assembly.

Reattach the electrical cable to the back of the headlight assembly. Reinstall the Charger's three headlight assembly retaining screws and close the hood.

Tips & Warnings

Use a clean cloth or a rag when handling the bulb as oils from your bare hands may damage the bulb.
