    Have them on my Challenger. Not hard to install. In fact mine came with the hole saw bit to drill hole. But I had my mechanic wire it up for me. They only stay on for about 2 minutes if you leave the door open.

    Does the existing courtesy light lens just pop out with a screwdriver?

    It just pops out. There’s a couple YouTube videos that show you what the light cassette looks like so you can envision it as you work it out. Just installed mine. Very easy [​IMG]

    Yep. You'll see where the release tabs are on the new one to know where to pop out the factory ones.

    Then you're able to pull the fixture out enough to disconnect the wire.

    My only complaint about the ones I bought is that they weren't marked for "L" and "R." So, I hooked the wire up to the new fixture and opened the other door to make the light come on so I could make sure that I had it on the correct side. That way I didn't risk breaking a tab by removing and reinstalling it too many times.

    Agree with that! Same experience. Check to ensure you have the correct side before you put them back in

    My son for a Christmas present got me a pair that has the Hellcat emblem when you open the door on my 2019 WB Redeye. They popped out an popped in. Here's my pic.

    Does anyone know what year Dodge started installing puddle lights on Challengers?
