Disconnect the headlamp bulb electrical connector . 5. Rotate the headlamp bulb retaining ring counterclockwise and remove the ring. 6.

      • Pull the headlamp bulb straight out using a gentle up and down rocking motion.

Remove the bulb sockets by twisting counter-clockwise.
Remove 4 phillips head screws on the rear of the assembly.
Detatch 2 metal clips on the radiator support.
Give a bump with your hand to seperate the seal from the vehicle.
Install is reverse of removal.
Do not touch the bulbs, as oil from your fingers will cause hotspots on the glass and they will fail pre-maturely.
Good Luck!!

When you open your hood and look at the back of the headlight, you will see a black or grey plastic ring. Turn the ring and slide off and the light will pull out.

Hi!
Run your 12v hot through the switch. Connect from the switch to the X terminal on an EL13A flasher. Run a wire from each of the remaining two terminals through a 6 amp diode and connect to the high beam wire near the light. Isolate each lead with a 6 amp diode.

As a customer, you asked to remove the HEADLIGHT not the assembly. Everyone was correct on the answer. To remove the assembly. go to an auto parts dealer and get a copy of the exploded version as this will show you every screw involved. Please post this as helpful if it is. TY

Its a tight squeeze to get to them, but you just have to reach in. You can see a round black plastic cover around the terminal, unscrew that, and there'll be some clips to pull them out. Just be careful not to touch the glass when putting them back it. its a bit of a struggle, but it can be done.

    That is how they release. When you remove the Nuts the Entire Headlight Housing will slide out. Could be that the Seals are Stuck to the Body.

2003 Mercury Sable headlight bulb replacement


This problem is now resolved, thanks to a prior post by sableowner.

http://www.fixya.com/cars/t1479995-2001_merc_sable_headlight_replacement

The 2003 Sable has the same headlight assembly and removal/replacement instructions as the 2001 Sable. Once I had this information in hand, bulb replacement was easy.
