2019 SPS Inner Headlight

Does anyone know how to remove the cap off the back of the inner headlight tube? It looks like there is just a black cap over it but I can’t tell if it pops off or screws off.

Reach in from the back of it, you'll feel three tabs, just gently push them in and it'll come off. but be careful, they break very easily if you ever want to put it back.

It's always a good day to take the Yacht out.

Just to clarify, this is a black cover on the back of the headlight tube. Not the clear lens at the front. I can not find any tabs or anything to pop it out.

Ah my apologies, I thought you meant the black cover for the tube in the middle of the inner light. The back of the headlight it's self only has the one opening for the actual headlight, not the inner one. The whole thing is sealed besides the one cap for the HID

When you say inner headlight do you mean DRL? If so I think DMan is correct. Take the upper plastic cover off adjacent to the hood latch and you can reach back there and feel the three tabs. What are you trying to do? Maybe that would clear up just where you're trying to access.

Are you talking about the Hellcat air inlet in the DRL (inside light)?

Or something new on the back of the light?

On my car my inner headlight is already open and illuminated inside. At the very back of it there is a large black cap. I think there are two set screws holding it on. I am hoping to check tomorrow.

It's those two screws that hold the black cap in. Had to do this last week when I found out it was capped. Only thing I'm not sure on is if the Mopar tube part fits with these illuminated lamps.

Post some pictures, as this is something new I believe. I this on Shaker cars only? I hadn't heard of this on previous years models with the illuminated air-catcher headlamps.

Yup, that’s it. I can feel the two screws. I will find out if the air box tube fits soon since I have one setting here. I will get a better pic when I take it off.
