Just purchased 2000 Dakota. I looked in the Owner's Manual to check
how to change bulb (561) in the underhood light with no hints found.
I found removing the wire easy, but does the box come apart to replace
a bulb or does the whole assembly need to be replaced? And is the
box Clipped to the hood or glued?
I started to <man handle> the light box and don't want to break
anything just yet. I know, real EASY but Frustrating.
A box about 2" x 3" completely covered by a semi-transparent lens? I
bought a used 2001 Ram with a broken underhood bulb, and I <oops> broke
mine open. Then I was able to see how I should have opened it. There
were releasable tabs at one side of the cover, and breakoffable tabs at
the other side, and that's all I remember about that.
Once the cover was off, I was glad that I didn't rip the whole box off
of the sheetmetal, because there's a big lag screw fastening it.
Check back tomorrow. I'll open mine again and post a picture.
