As with all late model cars, not everything is easily accessible. On all third generation Challengers, the fog lights are on the hidden side. To access them, the installer will need to have a pry tool along with a screwdriver if they are installing new assemblies. The good news is despite the tight working space, it really is as easy as changing a lightbulb.
The first step is to turn the wheel toward the inside of the wheel well. Along the fender, where the inner wheel housing is attached, you’ll find plastic rivets. Only a few will need to be removed and once they are, the housing can be pulled back for access to the fog lights. Keep in mind it’s a bit tight to work in there.
For those just looking to change bulbs, it’s as simple as disconnecting the harness, removing the bulb from the housing, and then simply installing the new bulb. For housing swaps, be patient it’s easy to get claustrophobic but the install shouldn’t take more than a few minutes once you’re in there. After the installation is complete simply replace the rivets and move on to the other side.
