just did my 99's, remove the two screws-nothing else- then it wiggle out.
Ok, here's the start for this one. Reference is yesterday's frustrating experience. My initial conclusions are to buy a manual or take it to the dealer. I wouldn't want to take it to anyone who has no experience with it. Our's is a 2005. Tried to replace the left front yesterday. The retainer ring was so tight I had to place a long stem scredriver blade against it and hit the handle. Got the ring off and next challenge was the retaining latch holding the electrical connector on the bulb. With the screwdriver I was able to pry it up enough to free the bulb but the only pivot point is painted so use a cloth to protect the paint. I got the bulb out of the housing but there was no way to get it out. 4 electrical connectors were in the way and their latches would not even move. I don't know what they are and didn't want to mess with them. Next attempt was to remove the whole housing. Two silver gray screws on top were easy to remove. The one to the center of the car is about 6-8 inches long, the other about 3. But the fascia holds the assembly in. Tried levering it down but the corners of the headlight housing wouldn't clear it. Looks like the fascia has to be loosened. One note of good news is that I finally found the battery---underneath all of that. Ford headlight R/R never looked so easy.
You have to unbolt the entire soft bumper and remove. The dealer did this on my car to replace the headlight assembly.

Directions straight from the owner's manual. 1. Open the hood and remove the headlight assembly mounting screws. 2. Pull the headlight assembly forward to access the bulbs. 3. Turn the bulb assembly retaining ring counterclockwise and pull the bulb and socket assembly from the housing. 4. Remove the bulb from the socket and replace the bulb. 5. Reinsert the bulb and socket assembly and turn the retaining ring clockwise to secure the bulb. 6. Reinstall the headlight assembly.
You have to remove the whole lense assembly. There are 3 nuts on the back, and 1 bolt on the top.
It is not a cover, the headlight is a sealed assembly.
If you are referring to the main headlight lamp, you cannot change it. You must buy the complete headlight assembly which is a self-contained unit that cannot be opened. Unscrew 2 holding screws, unplug the unit and slide it out. Then slide the new unit in, connect the plugs and tighten the holding screws. Dodge sells this assembly for about $100 or more but, try calling a local car junkyard that sells auto parts and see if they have or can get one. They are very resourceful. I did this and it only cost me $50. The ironic thing is I have a 98 stratus but the assembly came from a 99 one, so, in effect I have a headlight that is newer than the one that did not break.
Hit it with a hammer
If its a 2001+ Stratus Coupe first you need to remove the 2 bolts on the left and right sides of the lower middle dash assembly, these are at the very bottom of the assembly close to the center console (were your gearshift knob is. Once you remove those the assembly around your stero will come off. After that its just a matter of unbolting the stereo, sliding it out and removing the wireing harness in the back.
I detail used cars at local dealerships and I have restored many Caravan headlight lenses. I use a product called Crystalenz, it works great and is really easy to use. You DO NOT have to replace the lenses. Check out their website www.crystalenz.com for more info. for removal, see: How do you replace the headlight assembly located on a 1994 Dodge Caravan?
Best answer I've found, in my search for the same answer is that you have to remove the headlight assembly to get access to the bulb (thanks Toyota, for making this easy! I didn't expect it to be harder to do this simple task on a Toyota than of my Dodge Caravan for God's sake!) You have to remove the headlight assembly mounting screws and remove the headlight assembly. Remove the power cable by squeezing the lock clip to release the cable, then release the bulb from the headlight assembly. Reverse process for the new bulb. I've only read how to do this - not done it on my own yet, so I expect to learn (and be frustrated) in my own replacement efforts later today. Hope this helps.
