SOURCE: replace headlight
Review this guide...
Fig. 1: Examples of various types of automotive light bulbs
Fig. 2: Exploded view of the front headlight assembly and related components
Fig. 3: If equipped, open the headlight access panel by sliding the latch and lifting the panel upwards
Fig. 4: Exploded view of the headlight bulb, retainer and wire harness plug
- Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position
- If necessary, open the bulb access panel by depressing the latch then lifting.
Fig. 5: To remove the bulb, grasp the retainer and rotate it counterclockwise to unlock it ...
Fig. 6: ... then withdraw the bulb from the headlight lens housing
- Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and wire harness plug assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.
- Disconnect the electrical wire harness plug from the bulb and remove the locking ring as well.
Fig. 7: Unplug the wire harness from the bulb and either slide the retainer over the plug, or remove it from the bulb
- Before connecting a light bulb to the wire harness plug, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
- Install the locking ring onto the bulb, then line up the replacement headlight bulb with the harness plug. Firmly push the bulb onto the plug until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.
Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.
- Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.
- To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.
- Close the bulb access panel and the vehicle's hood.
Good luck... and remember rated my help!

Open the hatch and look to the side of the housing, there should be a tab sticking out of the side of the assembly with a screw securing it in place (It's between the trim seal and the assembly). Then in the inside of the hatch, look up to where the assembly would be, and there should be a long cylindrical nut (it's made of plastic and will have a metal center for the threads). Remove this and then you can pull the entire assembly off. You won't have a lot of room though because the wires are relatively short.

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
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.

you did not state which engine you have but if you are not real handy and/or have experience this is not one you should tackle as your first alternator because...
all will require that you either drop the rear of the subframe or rotate the engine forward to remove the alternator.
everything else is the same...remove the belt, unbolt and remove
about an hour job with experience and two hours if a first time
