Rather annoyingly, and unlike and other manufacturer, Jeep seem to keep all this info close to their chest and trying to get part numbers and description seems to be a nightmare.

I'm tryng to find part numbers for the headlight assemblies for a 2011/2012european Jeep Compass Sport, the base model as she comes. I need the ones that are/have:

[*]LHD headlight assemblies
[*]Daytime running lights (DRLs)
[*]Have the auto level system

I have a UK spec Jeep Compass Sport and need to put LHD headlight assemblies on for long term driving in Germany.

Can anyone help?

Have you called the Dealer service dept. They have all the database numbers.

I've called the factory, MOPAR and spoken directly in person to my local dealer in oklahoma. They can tell me part numbers, but not if those lights fit my jeep or not, and not even which are LHD, RHD and have the auto leveling and DRL fitted or not.

Of course, my VIN number only gives the current RHD lighlight assemblies already fitted and not the replacement LHD versions i'm trying to get.

Its as if its a secret and only you will only find out if you take it to a dealer to get them to do the job for mega $$$

Why do you need the other part if in the USA. Likely only available from the Eurpean division I would think. Their is a link somewhere but call customer service and request a build list (from Chrysler). This tell you what you have.

Explaination is in the first post. I'm currently in the US, but have a UK Jeep Compass Sport (RHD with RHD leadlights) that I collect in the UK and then need to register in Germany, which requires it to have LHD headlights. Sounds complicated, but thats military life for you! UK, posted to US, then posted to Germany.

I don't think there the same beam type as US lights, which I believe have a flat beam rather than slightly deflected left (UK) or right (Europe).

Are the headlight assemeblies sealed. I wonder if you can just change the deflectors behind the bulbs rather than the whole thing?

Well sound to me you'll have get and do it in Germany when you get the compass there. The entire fixture will have to be replace. It cannot be merely bulb issue and possible PCM change for the country as well to enable the electronics.
