The owners manual does tell you - but it is not obvious.
Unscrew the headlight unit - 1 screw
Push down the 2 retaining clips at the back of the unit to release them (long screwdriver needed
Remove the headlight unit so you can work on it - it will come out - try getting the end in the middle of the car out first rather than the wing side
The rest is easy as you have space to work.

It is easier to put the unit back than take it out apart from the clip on the wing side !

Enjoy

There is a rubber cap covering the bulb/socket. pull this off. reach inside and disconnect electrical connector. reach in and turn the locking ring counter clock wise. remove lock ring. grasp back of bulb and pull working up and down. may be a bit difficult because the o ring creates a very tight seal. Reverse directions to install the new one.

You have to have a small hand, and first remove the retaining ring that is attached to bulb, then pull out bulb, be careful not to let retainer ring fall off from bulb housing, then plug in bulb and try to screw retaing ring back on. It requires a small hand and delicate touch.

SOURCE: replacing headlight bulb ford focus

Most of this solution for changing a headlamp on a ford focus sedan is taken from solution 2's writeup, accept with a few more details that should help changing the bulb assembly for the novice. Pop the hood. At the front of the car, look to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be a plastic cover on the back. On some models, you need to unscrew the plastic cap; on others, it just pops or screws off. Remove the plastic cover and then take note of the orientation of the three prong connector on the back of the bulb assembly. This is important because the replacement bulb assembly is going to have to be positioned in the same manner. By noting the orientation before taking out the old assembly, it will be easier to orient the replacement bulb assembly after removal.
There is a small retaining clip that surrounds and holds the bulb in place. Removing the clip can be tricky. On my 2003 Ford Focus sedan, there is a special place to push and release the clip that is above the bulb - perhaps further above than you might think. Push the release clip and it will release the retaining clip from the bulb assembly. Gently pull the retaining clip down and out of the way of the bulb assembly. Pull the original bulb straight out. Remove the three prong connector from the bulb assembly. Connect the three prong connector to the replacement bulb and then orient the three prong connector as the original and push bulb assembly straight back into place. Jiggle the assembly slightly to seat it into the correct position in the headlamp housing and replace the retaining clip to hold the bulb in place. Replace the plastic cover on the back of the headlamp and replacement is complete.
No tools. 10 minutes.

  • Ensure that the headlights on your Ford Focus are off by checking you have turned the headlight control all the way to the off position. Make sure your car is off and the keys are out of the ignition, so the daytime lamps are also off.
  • Open the hood using the hood release handle located inside the vehicle under the steering wheel on the left side of the instrument panel. Walk around to the front of your Ford Focus and release the auxiliary latch located under the front of the hood. Lift the hood and secure it in place with the yellow end of the hood's strut in the designated holes.
  • Locate the bulb cover found just behind the headlight assembly and remove it by turning it counterclockwise. Swivel the wire clip that hold the bulb and connector in place out of the way by turning it to the left.
  • Pull out the headlight bulb with its electrical connector straight out from the headlamp assembly.
  • Disconnect the bulb from the connector. Later editions of the Ford Focus may have a retaining ring that lies between the bulb and electrical connector. Simply remove this retaining ring by twisting it off with a counterclockwise turn.
  • Install the replacement headlight bulb in reverse order of removal. Use a HB2 replacement bulb for models older than 2004 and a HB5 bulb for models produced since 2005. Replace the wire clip and bulb cover, as well.
  • Turn on your Ford Focus and check that the headlights are working properly after closing the hood.
