How to change the parking light on Dodge Dakota 1997-2004

Do it yourself, change the parking light on your Dodge Dakota, the model made between the years 1997 and 2004. This repair requires a T10 torx driver and a new parking light assembly. The whole process should not take you more than 20 minutes.

     In the beginning, open the hood and work to remove the rubber gasket on the headlight, as you can see in the picture below. It is held by some pins and you can remove it very easily.

     After you do it, you have to deal with the T10 torx screw that is located between the headlight and the parking light assemblies, as shown in the image below.

     Use the appropriate torx driver to remove it and then you can just pull out the parking light. Behind it, you will notice the three harnesses that power up the bulbs. Twist them counterclockwise and detach the assembly completely. You can service the bulbs easily or just replace the parking lens with a new one. You have to reconnect the bulbs back, insert the new assembly into the body of the car and secure it with the T10 torx screw. In the end, don’t forget to put back that rubber gasket. This is all you have to do if you wish to change the parking light assembly on your Dodge Dakota, produced between the years 1997 and 2004.
