I am not familiar with the Crossfire, but I thought I would sympathize. Why do designers make this so complicated?!

Great pic Moe!
It's just like my Sebring, and it is a pain to get to. Mostly because you can't get visual access. If you can get your fingers in there and press the top of that clip toward the front, then to the side, getting the clip to come loose isn't too bad, but getting it back into it's little hook can be. It is a pretty stiff spring.

I don't have to remove the lens and housing, but I do have to loosen it and move it forward.

Moe, your link to the removal of the light directs to a DealerConnect screen, password required.

Would the info be in the users manual of the car?

Ihate it when the manufacturers state that the "Lamps on this vehicle must be changed by a professional mechanic"....... drives me nuts.... Maybe HID lights due to the high voltage issue, but that's it!!!!! Just had to vent!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for the information moe. Now, you gave me idea about replacing the headlamp. I also read some car tips and car care at Autopartswarehouse to be able to get additional idea about cars and auto parts.

in order to actually get the headlamp assembly out of the vehicle you need to remove the front wheel well shrouds. There are ten mm bolts holding the assemblies in from the bottom. if your just replacing bulbs I find it to be easier to use a pair of 90 degree needle nose to get the clip off. moving the intake hoses helps a lot also.
