Look at the lens and you should see that one side of the lens will have a bigger gap between it and the plastic (I believe the gap should be on the right side). Take a flat screwdriver and gently pry on the left side pushing the housing to the right. If it doesn't budge, reverse the sides, but I'm pretty sure you should push it towards the right (passenger side) and it should pop out

I have a ford focus hatch back ,and what i like to no ,how to change the light blubs at the front off the car. the year off car is on a 55 plate .


your car should have a manual that might help you out with this but usually when you open the hood of the car you should see by both areas where the light bulbs are at after you opened the hood of car usually has a bulb harness by both areas that you can screw off and then replace them just take your time so you do not break the plastic. I also need to say this too that if you want to change your bulbs in front of your car to make sure that your new bulbs that you do not touch the glass of them because it will prolong the new bulbs by your touch !!

Sounds like something is connecting to the car body, I would inspect the bulb you changed make sure the metal clips or wires are not touching anything.

if you buy some of those "on tv only" lights that are bubble shaped and plastic, you can duct tape those onto your license plate area and click them on or off when needed.

Ford Focus Estate Diesel, 51 plate.


It turned out that the bulbs in the headlights had gone simultaneously. Luckily my son is knowledgeable about cars. He came over and figured out the problem. I had to purchase new bulbs, then my son had to practically dismantle the front of the car to change the bulbs. It was a complicated operation just to replace bulbs, and something I would not have been able to tackle myself. If it had not been for my son. I would have had to spend a fortune at a garage for a mechanic to replace the bulbs for me. What should have been a relatively simple task has become a mammoth operation. In years gone by it would have been a simple task that I could have performed myself. Why do manufacturers design cars so that it is so complicated just to replace the bulbs. There are so many things that have developed faults on this Ford Focus, I will never have another one.

Change tag bulb 2000 focus


am not familiar with the early year Focus'. Look above the license plate, if the lens for the bulb has two screws, you need to remove them to access the bulb. On other models, open the trunk and look down where the license plate is, you should be able to see and access the bulb from there.
