Chrysler 300 Headlight Assembly

Troubleshooting Chrysler 300 Headlight Assembly

It is not every day that you replace or diagnose problems on your Chrysler 300 headlight assembly, that's why it is understandable to that you will not get it right the first time-or you may not get it right at all. Should the need arises, here are guides that will help you make the process much easier:

Problem removing the headlight assembly

Removing the Chrysler 300 headlight assembly is a lengthy and meticulous process. Be ready to get your hands dirty. Also, don't forget to bring another set of hands; you're going to need it. (If you have removed other headlight assemblies before, the process may be much easier.) Before you can remove the headlight assembly, you must remove the wheel house splash shield that is connected to the front fascia assembly. You also have to remove the belly pan from the underbody. Then, remove the screws that secure the front fascia assembly. If your 300 is equipped with headlamp washer, remove the hose from the washer reservoir. Now, you can access the headlight assembly and assess the problem.

Replacing the bulbs of Chrysler 300 headlights

This process requires you to remove the wheel house splash shield, the belly pan from the underbody, and the front fascia. This takes time and can sap patience out of you. If you want to replace the bulbs on your Chrysler 300 headlights, be sure to replace all four bulbs so that you don't repeat the process again anytime soon. If the lenses are starting to get foggy or discolored, change the headlight assembly together with the bulbs. The key is to replace everything that needs to be replaced so that you don't have to do the same process all over again.

Adjusting tilt on headlights

Adjusting tilt on headlights should be done once you notice that your headlights are not aimed right. Find a level driveway and face the wall. Turn on the headlights to see what needs to be adjusted. Once you have identified the center of the headlight, use a screwdriver and adjust the screw at the top of the headlight bucket.

  • Chrysler 300 Headlight Assembly Maintenance and Headlight Care Tips 27 February 2013

    No headlight lasts forever. Even the most durable headlights get damaged sometimes. Even the most durable bulbs will eventually dim. Be that as it may, car owners have a very important role to play in keeping the headlights in correct working order. Car owners have the final say whether or not the headlights will last for one year, two years, or five years. If you own a Chrysler 300, here are some maintenance and headlight care tips that will extend the life of your headlights:


    Cleaning tips

    Wash your headlights regularly.


    While headlights are easy to clean, it doesn't mean that you don't clean your headlights regularly. Since dirt on the lens reduces the intensity of the headlight beams and a reduced intensity of the lights affects how well you see on the road, this is not only an aesthetic issue, but a safety concern as well.


    Remove any oxidation from the headlight lens.


    Oxidation naturally occurs when the combined heat of the headlights and the changing environment cooks the headlight lens. This, however, can be prevented by regularly applying adhesive (rubbing compound, toothpaste, or any headlight maintenance kit) onto the lens. Since oxidation is hard to remove when it already sets onto the headlight, cleaning areas of the lens that is just starting to get foggy will make your job less difficult.


    Other headlight care tips

    Use extra layer of protection.


    Keeping your Chrysler 300 headlight assembly clean is just one way to help keep it well maintained. If you are like other 300 owners who want to give another layer of protection to prevent any damage on their car's headlights, headlight covers and headlight film are a good choice.


    Make sure your headlights aimed correctly.


    The angle of your headlights affects your vision as well as the oncoming traffic. Adjust the tilt of your headlights so that you maximize road visibility as well as you don't distract oncoming traffic.


    Replace all bulbs at the same time.


    Removing the headlight assembly is a tedious process. If one of the headlight bulb is bad and you think the others are about to die as well, replace all of them to save you trouble and time.
