Changing Headlight Bulb on 2010 KK

Does anyone know how to change the headlight bulb on a 2010 Liberty KK? I would appreciate any help from someone who has done this.

Thanks - Paul

You reach behind the housing and twist the bulb(dont remember which way) and it will then pull out and away from the housing. You then pull the red tab on the wire,push down and disconnect the bulb from the wire.

You might find it easier to remove the grill and the headlight unit to do the driver side. Also, make sure the rubber gasket comes off with the old bulb

I don't like to remove my battery... Plus on one of the radios, you can fry it if you don't pull a fuse...

Changing Headlight on 2010 Liberty KK

Thanks for everybodys input. It sounds to me like the 2008 Liberty is different from the 2010 Liberty as far as the room available to get to the back of the headlight.

I finally tried it myself on my 2010 KK. I was able to get my hand on both headlight sockets without touching the battery or the air cleaner scoop. It's tight and I didn't try turning the headlight connectors but since they are plastic screwed into plastic they shouldn't be that hard to twist off. I was also able to pull 3 plastic pins from the front wheel well to access the front turn signal and front side marker. The rear turn signal/brake lights are a piece of cake. Pull off the plastic light box, disconnect the electrical connector, and remove the backplate from the light box....change the bulb.

Now if I can only reach the oil filter I'll be set
