Re: change ford festiva front light bulb
Hello, the front light bulbs are easily changed by twisting the plastic holder in the back of the lamp that holds the bulb counter-clockwise. You turn it about a 1/4 turn and then it pulls out and you can switch bulbs. Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers because oil from your fingers will cause the bulb to burn out quickly.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

unbolt the headlight (4 bolts on top, one of then is a tightening bolt,
a long skinny bolt, try loosening that one, you can tell which one it
is 'cuz there is no bracket on it.). Remove it then go in from the side
you should be able to just reach the bulb socket, I think it twists
out,you should be able to twist it with your fingers.
The best place I've found for electrical diagrams is alldata.com, but it will cost, it's not free. I'm not sure what they charge for this, but it's based on Chilton Manuals, which have electrical diagrams in them.
I can't give it to you for free, even from my online resource, because Fixya.com doesn't seem to copy and paste from that to the Fixya.com website.

Start by checking the fuse(s), then if all is good there,move on to checking or replaceing the headlight relay, if all is good check the head light on/off switch on the dash,and last if all is good there, check or replace the headlight bulbs.
Good Luck !
it's done from the inside of the passenger compartment... you may have to remove the battery first if it's on that side. oh and don't touch the bulb with your fingers ... it shortens the life of the bulb.
Hi! Most modern engines use 10/40 or similar. 20/50 was well used in older classic vehicle. I would ask at your parts supplier when purchasing the oil, he or she will have the correct specifications on hand from their oil supplier. Hope this helped!

Depending on mileage and how long you have driven with a damaged boot, it may be a good idea to swap in a new axle ( re manufactured). If you are handy enough to get the axle out, you should be able to get the old joint apart by putting the axle in a vise, cutting off the old boot, and removing the joint from the axle. There are various ways that these are fastened, but generally they are held in place by a circular clip or retaining ring. Check a manual for your specific type of retainer. Once removed, the joint should be completely disassembled and cleaned in solvent, and then reassembled. Then, you still have an old joint, which is why it is faster and easier and better to replace the axle. Good luck. Chip
