Default Light Bulb under hood



Lifted up my hood tonight and found that my light bulb was out. Could someone please tell me the procedure in removing and replacing the bulb. I have a 2006 Ram 1500.

Much obliged.

I believe you need to purchase the whole assembly. It's stupid money at the dealer, $21.95 at Sears and I believe I've seen it for as low as $12 on ebay NIB...

you can replace the bulb itself.. i did it in my old 02.. it does comes apart. kind of a pain.. it is the same light from at least 02 to 06 as i now have an 06 myself.. but it was a while back i replaced it and i dont remember how exactly it came apart or what bulb it takes.. but it does come apart.. i can let u know tomorrow exatly which bulb it is..

since when was a service manual ever 100% right. my snowmobile service manual says there is no serviceable parts in the fuel pump but you can buy a rebuild kit for it. the manual mentioned nothing about a rebuild kit. they are in it for the money.

Believe it or not it was an option. Although many "packages" included it so most have it. But I've been under the hood of more than a couple Rams that have not had one.

The light (that I pictured above) and the wire loom kit are available all over the place and I've seen the whole package on ebay for around $20. You already have the plug, so it's not a biggie to add it...
