There was a point in time where removing the headlights from a large sport utility vehicle was as simple as removing a metal ring that ran around the outer edge of the large headlight lens but those days are long gone. In the 3rd generation Dodge Durango, removing the headlight housings entails removing the front fascia and while that can be a daunting task for a novice mechanic – we have a DIY here on DodgeForum.com that walks you through each step of the procedure.
Best of all, only one inexpensive “special tool” is needed to make the Dodge Durango headlight removal easier and the DF’er who put together this DIY explains what tool you need, how much it costs and where to buy it. After that, simple everyday tools will allow you to remove the front fascia of the Durango so that you can remove the headlights. This DIY is also helpful for anyone looking to change or paint the grille filler in the front fascia so if you have a 3rd gen Durango and you are looking to do any sort of work that involves removing the fascia – this DIY is one worth bookmarking.
