Hi, I have a 99 mercury cougar and I need to change the headlights. I am having difficulty finding the electrical connector so that I can pull the headlight assembly out and change the lights. Where is this located and do I have to remove anything else after the connector has been disconnected? Thanks

How to change the headlights?


Hi there, here are some few tips to assist you:
  • Remove the center cover and the screws attached to the radiator grille. Pull the radiator grille out of the engine compartment and set it on the ground.
  • Use a T30 Torx screwdriver to remove the two primary retaining screws from the headlight assembly. Make a note of each screw's original location--they're not interchangeable, so you'll need to put them back in the right slot to reassemble the light.
  • Draw the headlamp assembly away from the car and then disconnect the electrical wiring connector.
  • Release the wire clip on the back of the headlight assembly and remove the cover.
  • Disconnect headlight electrical connector and turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Install the new bulb, replace the cover and reattach the electrical connector.
  • Reconnect the headlight assembly wiring connector. Test the new bulb to make sure it works before replacing the retaining screws and radiator grille.
Hope these help. Please rate me if they do.

Can the factory headlight lens covers on a 2001 Mercury Cougar be removed and cleaned ? I can remove the entire healight assembly and change the bulbs, but the inside of the healight cover is dirty and...


The lincoln LS had the same problems, and the lens was held to the headlight assembly with a sticky glue.
To remove them, some guys were successful by warming the headlight assembly in the oven untill the glue softened up enough to be pulled apart.
Be careful if you try this, to much head and..oops I melted my headlight

Headlight switch replacement


Here is the recall info.

The vehicles affected by this recall are certain ‘92 & ‘93 model year Ford Thunderbirds and Mercury Cougars. The problem; the headlights turn off, then come back on after driving with the fog lights on. Ford is replacing the headlight switch and if necessary the electrical connector for the headlight switch. Repairs for a safety recall are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner. In addition, if the headlight switch was replaced before the recall, the owner is entitled to a refund for repairs. But the owner should still bring their vehicle in for inspection. Why? The replacement part may not have been of the new design.
