the pull switch for the hed lights snaps in place, if you pull out to turn the lights on and turn the knob as to dim the lights you'll see a notch in the knob. with a small screw driver or pick tool you can lift a metal tab and remove the knob, then remove to two trim pieces left and right of the steering wheel and there will be two 1/4 in nut drive screws, remove those and the gage cluster dash trim can be pulled right off exposing the head light switch
1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood. 2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying. 3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside. 4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it. 5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb. 6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical. 7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten. 8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.
There are two screws and two nuts that hold the lighting unit in place. The screws are at the top. The two nuts are 11mm and located at each bottom corner. You can see the nuts from underneath the truck, but they are accessed from the top.
replacement is done from inside the engine compartment... the socket usually needs about a quarter turn to remove it.... you may have to remove the battery if it's on that side... and don't touch the bulb with your fingers as that will shorten it's life.
