Question about 1983 Ford Fairmont
Hi, if the bulb is just blown then you can replace it by removing the cover off the back of the headlight (black cover, rotates about 1/4 turn to remove) and just pull the bulb socket out of its retainer. It's the small round thing just beside the main bulb assembly, with 2 wires going to it. Once its out, just pull the bulb out, fit the new one, and reassemble. If it is the same side as the battery, you may have to remove the battery to get enough room to get in there to replace the bulb. If you remove the battery, you'll need the radio code, if its still got the original radio.
If the headlight lens is broken from some accident damage, then you'll have to take the bumper off to get the headlight out and replace it.
Hope this helps.
