2016 RAM 1500 Headlight Bulb Size

The "RAM 1500 2016 Bulb Size Guide" offers a detailed insight into the lighting system of this robust vehicle. The guide reveals a total of 20 unique bulb positions, showcasing the model's comprehensive lighting design. A key observation is the utilization of different bulb sizes based on specific features, like projector-type headlights. For example, 9005 bulbs are used for both high beam and low beam (with projector-type headlights), while H11 is for low beam (without projector-type headlights). LED technology is prominently used in various positions, including stepwell and brake lights with projector-type headlights, indicating a modern approach to lighting.

The RAM 1500 2016 is a blend of power and functionality with a few quirks. Its strength lies in its robust performance and towing capability, perfect for those heavy-duty tasks. However, its size can be a bit unwieldy in tight urban spaces. In true Chris Harris fashion, it's a truck that delivers a punch while navigating the balance between practicality and bulkiness.

FAQs

Replacing the headlight bulb on a 2016 RAM 1500:

  1. Remove Radiator Cover: Start by removing the radiator cover, taking out the six poppets across the top.
  2. Remove Grill Bolts: Next, remove the four 10mm bolts holding the grill. Note that the two outer bolts have coarse threads and the two inner ones have fine threads.
  3. Detach Grill Clips: There are a couple of clips inside the grill. Apply a bit of force to remove them carefully and then set the grill aside.
  4. Remove Headlight Bolts: On each headlight, remove two 10mm bolts – one on the top inside corner and another connected to the adjuster screw on the bottom.
  5. Access Fender Well Panel: Proceed to the fender well, where you'll need to remove a clip to access the panel. A small screwdriver or poppet kit can be useful here.
  6. Remove Headlight: Inside the panel, locate a white clip that holds the headlight. Pull this out, and the headlight will come loose.
  7. Replace Bulb: For low beams (H11 bulb), twist the cover and bulb to the left and pull them out. For high beams (9005/HB3), follow the same process. Ensure the LED's alignment is vertical for correct light dispersion.
  8. Reinstall Headlight: Insert the new bulb, twisting it to the right to lock it in. Replace the headlight cover by twisting it.
  9. Reassemble Components: Put back the fender well panel and clip, followed by the headlight bolts, grill, and radiator cover.
  10. Test the Lights: Finally, test the headlights, high beams, and low beams to ensure they work properly.
