You might want to try turning the connector to the right first before pulling it out. To the right because you' re not facing the rear of the connector.

I have a 1993 dodge dynasty and i cant figure out how to replace the bulb, do i need to remove the headlight itself to do this


Unplug the bulb by pressing down on the locking tab and pulling the connection off.
There is a locking ring around the bulb base. Twist this ring that has raises on it. It will turn only about a 1/4th or 1/3rd of the way. Once turned, pull the bulb out by its base. The bulb has a o-ring around the base, which is snuggly into the headlight assembly, so pull pretty hard.

Replacing the headlight bulbs on 2005 Ranger


Having just purchased a 2002 Ford Focus I found that the passenger side headlight had gone. Stumbled accross this thread and thought "looks like a pain".
Popped to Halfords and picked up a H1 bulb, went home and had a look under the bonnet.
Armed with just a screwdriver I managed to change the bulb within 10 mins. Flicked the headlight cover off using the screwdriver for a bit of leverage. Unpluged the headlight and flicked off the retaining clip. Removed the bulb.
Fitting was even easier - Put bulb in place, clip the retaining clip in place, plug in and replace cover.
Job done within 10 minutes with no prior experience of Fords.
Hope it helps
IMPORTANT!!! The retaining clip does NOT just flick off. Tried that and broke the plastic stop that holds the retainer clip and allows it to apply tension to the bulb! The retainer wire is held in place on the bottom by a screw and clip on the bottom and is locked into a plastic clip on top. To remove the wire, push the wire down and towards the passenger side of the car, it will dislodge and you can then lower it to remove the bulb. Once the bulb has been changed, you want to replace the wire the same way to protect the plastic clip. I don't know what I will do about the plastic clip now, the retaining wire has no tension and I'm afraid the bulb will not remain seated properly. However, knowing what I know now, I agree with the above answer: Done in 10 minutes without prior experience with Fords.
=== Just finished doing this. A small mirror and a flashlight make this job simple. It's very easy to do once you can see the top of the clip.
small mirror and flashlight are essential, look at the way the retaining wire seats before you unclip it. flat side of the bulb houseing sits at the bottom of the access hole. retaining wire clips bottom to top. I had a hard time with seating the new bulb and had to figure out the retaining wire clipped from bottom to top because I didn't look at it before I unclipped it. obviously fords designed this for ease of manufacter with very little regard to the average layman who would do the replacing.
