No you do not need to change the entire light assembly the bulb is located under the hood just behind the assembly and if you can get your hand in there there is a socket you turn counter clockwise and then the bulb comes out when replacing with the new one please remember to wipe the bulb off if you touch it with your hands but if you go to auto zone and buy the bulb they will help you with installing it

We own a 1997 ford f250 4x4 and the head light


The headlight bulb is a fairly simple replace. If involves removing the old light by reaching behind the hedlight where the socket with the wires goes into the headlight. It usually is just a quarter turn or a squeeze and turn kind of motion. Once the socket is out of the headlight then you will be able to simply pull the bulb out and replace with a new one...NOTE...do not touch the new headlight bulb with your fingers...we have an oil that is naturally produced in our skin and can make your new bulb fail prematurally. Use a paper towel to install the new bulb or a gloved hand.

Just check the fuse box for busted fuses. They are properly labelled as headlights, park lights, etc..
Also check the wirings for short circuited lines. Further-
more check the bulbs, if these are still ok.

Headlight change


Bulb should come out of back of headlamp housing. May need to remove battery if bad bulb is on that side.

Changed passenger side headlight bulb, now unable to adjust or align head lights


Changing the bulb should not have affected the housing adjustments.

The bulb is just inserted into the headlight housing. The adjustments on the headlight housing is what adjusts the alignment of the headlights.

Did you maybe not get the bulb not seated correctly in the socket? Or didn't get the socket not seated correctly into the housing?
