How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 1997-2000 Dodge Dakota Fog Light Replacement

Fits years: 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000

All Dodge Dakota Fog Lights for sale Tools required:
  • T10 Torx Driver

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood.

NOTE: If you are replacing a fog light due to front-end damage, you may want to replace the headlight and turn signal assemblies, as well, as we'll be removing them during this project. In other words, it'll never be easier than it is right now!

Step 2: Using the T10 Torx driver, remove the small screw that is located where the headlight, parking light, and side marker light meet.

Step 3: Pull back the rubber gasket divider that separates the lighting area from the radiator.

Step 4: Pull out on the parking light and disconnect the harnesses on the back.

Step 5: Locate and remove three 10mm bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place.

One is located in the area exposed by removing the turn signal assembly, another is beneath the assembly, and the final bolt is behind the rubber radiator gasket.

Step 6: Using a screwdriver, disengage the retaining clip and disconnect the wiring harness on the back of the headlight assembly and remove it from the vehicle.

Step 7: Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the fog light assembly in place.

Step 8: You can now remove the fog light assembly from the vehicle and disconnect the wiring harness.

The assembly pulls out through the BACK of the bumper.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement fog light from Go-Parts it likely includes a new bulb, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, in case your particular model does not include a new bulb, simply turn the socket counter-clockwise, remove it from the assembly, and add it to the new fog light.

Step 9: Connect the wiring harness to the back of the new fog light assembly.

Step 10: Secure the fog light by tightening the two 10mm retaining bolts.

Step 11: Reconnect and attach the headlight assembly.

Step 12: Reconnect and attach the turn signal/marker light assembly.
