All of the Focus model lights are identical. I recently installed Sylvania Cool Blue's on my '01 ZX3. 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 screws off. There is a small retaining clip that surrounds and holds the bulb in place. Removing the clip can be tricky. On my Focus Wagon, there is a special place to push and release the clip that is above the bulb - perhaps further above than you might think. Gently push this aside with your hand and the bulb assembly will come right out. Just remove the original bulb and pop the new one in. These bulbs have a standard three-prong setup so there's only one way to install the new bulb. Pop the assembly back in place, attach the retaining clip and put the plastic cover back on. On the driver's side, you may want to remove the battery cover to give yourself a little extra room to work. No tools. 10 minutes.

2001 Ford Focus. Drivers side headlight low beam keeps going out. Replaced bulb many times. High beam works but no low beam. Please help, this is very frustrating. All other lights are fine. Thank...


I might be wrong but the first thing I would be checking is when its working with a new bulb does it go brighter when you rev your engine? If it does (it might not always do that) I would check for a bad earth on the headlight or where it is grounded to the body. That is the most simple thing to check for but it could be a fault in other places too, (alternator, switches etc.)and unless you are a good electrician I would sugest you take it to an auto spark and let him/her look into it for you. Sorry I cant be any more help than that.

The replacement bulb for the headlight in you Focus is a 9003. There are several variations to this number though. For example GE/Sylvania has a 9003CB--CB standing for "Cool Blue", 9003XV--XV standing for Xtra Vision, etc. Hopefully you plan on replacing both bulbs when you go to do so. You lights will not look like you have one old bulb and one new bulb and you won't have to worry about it going out on you at a bad time and costing you a traffic ticket. Hope this helps and have a great day!
