How to Replace a Headlight Bulb in a Chrysler Sebring

by Editorial Team

If you've owned your Chrysler Sebring for a few years, your headlight bulbs may need replacing. As long as you have the correct replacement bulbs in hand, completing the installation should only take a few minutes and won't require any special tools. These instructions don't apply to models made before 2000.

Step 1

Set the parking brake and remove the keys from the ignition. Open the Sebring's hood using the primary and auxiliary release latches.

Step 2

Remove the two headlight mounting screws, and then pry the plastic fasteners away from the assembly using a flathead screwdriver or other flat-bladed tool.

Step 3

Pull the headlight assembly away from the car. Be careful not to scratch the headlight lens or the exterior paint.

Step 4

Turn the bulb one-quarter turn counterclockwise and remove it from the assembly.

Step 5

Pull the old bulb directly out of the socket and replace it with the new one. Dispose of the old bulb to prevent it from becoming a hazard.

Step 6

Screw the bulb back into the assembly and press the assembly back into position.

Step 7

Test the headlamp to make sure it works before replacing the plastic fasteners and headlight mounting screws.
