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.
