How to change headlight lamp drivers side


On the back, engine side of the headlights there is a rectangular plate which allows access to the bulbs (lamps) to remove this there are locking bars, pry these, up and down away from the plate, remove plate.
The headlamp bulb is the larger one and is retained with a spider clip, above the bulb pinch the spider clip and push slightly forward while opening the pinch. The bulb should now be loose with a wiring block attached.
Slide the bulb out of the recess, remove the wiring harness by pulling the block away from the bulb.
You can now replace bulb, which should have a protective sleeve of foam or card protecting the glass, do not touch the glass of the bulb, touching the glass will cause the bulb to blow when it gets hot.
To replace bulb, push spider clip away from recess, while holding the metal part of the bulb remove sleeve and insert bulb into recess, turn the bulb to ensure it has seated flat into recess, refit spider clip over bulb pushing forwards then pinching, refit wiring harness.
Check the lights to ensure bulb is working.

I have a 2000 ford focus SE AND driver side brake light will not work...have only tried changing bulbs


Could be in your signal switch..Get someone to watch your brake lights,,and apply your brakes,,and move your blinker switch around and see if the brake light tries to come on..The brake light circuit runs through the switch...Even if the blinkers work it can have a short in the switch,...Then if that dont work,,take a test light and see if your getting voltage to the light...If so wiggle the wires on the light socket and see if there is a bad connection

I have a 51 plate ford focus estate,the rear brake lights dont work although the high level one does,i`ve checked fuse and bulbs etc. any clues


If bulbs are definetly ok you can look behind trim on the left side in the boot, which covers the space between the boot floor and the window, you are looking for a green/red wire in a connector. this is the power cable which supplies both rear side mounted brake lights. You should check for voltage at this wire when pedal depressed. If no voltage you would need to trace this back to where the wire is joined in the loom as it feeds off the wire which supplies the high mounted brake light and you have stated that this works. Would still double check bulbs first though if you did'nt replace them. Hope this helps.

Ford focus estate diesel headlight bulb change


Halfords just did mine for £15 including the bulb. When I got there the other one had gone so I had to get both done. If you want to save money, just get one done and watch how they do it.
