To replace the headlight on a 1993 Tracer you must turn the black plastic retainer ring counter clockwise and then pull back gently. The ring and bulb should then slide out toward the engine.
Carefully grab the sides of the plug and pull the bulb out.
When replacing the bulb make sure not to touch the glass part or it will cause the bulb to burn out sooner. Place the black ring back over the bulb with the open end towards the glass part of the bulb. Fit the wiring onto the back of the bulb and insert the bulb back into the reflector. The black plastic ring has notches that fit over protrusions. Turn the black ring clockwise and your done. Test the headlight. Happy Driving

My 1993 Mercury Tracer doesn't put out any heat and the temperature gauge stays on cold. I changed out my thermostat and nothing has changed. What else could it be?

I had the same problem with my daughters 93 Tracer today. I fixed it by going under the dash (on the drivers side). If you move the temp lever while looking at the parts on the heater, you'll probably see, as I did, that there''s a white plastic piece with a groove in it, that a little bent wire fits into. That wire accuates the temp control. Mine had come out. It has a little white attachment that fits behind the bottom (black plastic thingy) that holds the wire in place. I put a drop of superglue in it and put it back on. It now works fine! Hope that is your problem too. Good Luck!

Lights on the dashboard of a murcuri tracer 93 won't turn on

* check your fuses
*check them again
* if all the fuses are good , its gonna be a bad headlight switch , because generally all the bulbs wouldnt burn out at the same time. but if you can remove the dashboard panel you can check the bulbs. but chances are its the headlight switch ( if its not a BAD FUSE) but check the fuses real good.

Headlight switch replacement

Here is the recall info.

The vehicles affected by this recall are certain ‘92 & ‘93 model year Ford Thunderbirds and Mercury Cougars. The problem; the headlights turn off, then come back on after driving with the fog lights on. Ford is replacing the headlight switch and if necessary the electrical connector for the headlight switch. Repairs for a safety recall are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner. In addition, if the headlight switch was replaced before the recall, the owner is entitled to a refund for repairs. But the owner should still bring their vehicle in for inspection. Why? The replacement part may not have been of the new design.
