Video Description

The 2006 Dodge Magnum RT is a relatively easy car to maintain, and a good choice for the experienced car owner. Both the front and rear wiper blades are easy to replace on this vehicle. Other models will require the use of tools to replace, so it’s a nice touch to be able to reliably change these blades with just your hands. Checking the oil level is not a problem, as the oil dipstick is easily accessible in the engine bay. The engine air filter is easy to access on this vehicle, as you only have to disengage a few fasteners in order to lift the cover for access. These fasteners are easy to disengage.

Some things are more problematic to repair on the 2006 Dodge Magnum RT. To access the fog light, you will have to reach through the wheel well lining first. This can be a problem, as the lining can grow tight to the vehicle over time. The headlight bulb is tough to access on one side of the vehicle, as you will have to remove the air filter housing and a reservoir to complete. This is more problematic access than on other models. You will have to remove a large panel from under the car in order to drain the oil on this vehicle. This will require a difficult reach under the car, as well as the removal of a few bolts.
