I think for these you have to change the entire headlamp in order to change the bulb.

How to replace left front head light bulb on a 08 ford ranger


You do it from the back side of the Headlight Assembly. Open the hood and look behind the Headlight and you will see where the wires connect to the bulb. Disconnect the wire harness and unfasten the bulb by undoing the spring clip or locking ring depending on the truck.

Need to replace the headlights in my 1988 ford ranger.


The bulbs are replaceable without removing the headlight lens. Open hood and look behind the headlight lens. You can twist the black round housing holding the bulb socket counter-clockwise and remove bulb with socket. remove bulb thru collar. Install new bulb (DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS PART WITH YOUR FINGERS). Reconnect.

Removal of head light assy 1989 ford ranger.


Hello,

To remove the front head light please follow the steps below:
  1. Place the Ford Ranger in "Park." Turn the engine off. Turn the headlights off. Remove the key from the ignition. Allow the truck to cool for about 20 minutes.
  2. Open the hood of the vehicle. Locate the two retainer pins on the headlight assembly of the light that needs to be replaced. Pry the retainer pins open with your finger. This releases the headlight assembly from the Ranger.
  3. Pull the headlight assembly forward. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the assembly by hand. Rotate the retaining ring counterclockwise and slide it off the plastic bulb base.
  4. Pull the burned out bulb straight out of the headlight assembly. Discard the used bulb. Insert a replacement bulb into the headlight assembly and push it straight into the socket until it clicks into place. Slide the retaining ring around the bulb and rotate it clockwise to secure it.
  5. Plug the electrical connector into the back of the unit. Slide the headlight assembly back into the Ranger. Push the retaining pins back down to secure the headlight assembly.
Hope this helped. thank You for using FixYa!!!

Headlights


Under the hood, on the back of headlight you will find a electrical plug. That plug can be taken and turned about 90° counter clockwise and poped out. It holds the actual bulb for the headlight, which you just pull out and push in the new one. Push the connector back into the headlight assembly and twist it back to lock it in. There may not be much room, so small hands are a plus.

Replacing the headlight bulbs on 2005 Ranger


Having just purchased a 2002 Ford Focus I found that the passenger side headlight had gone. Stumbled accross this thread and thought "looks like a pain".
Popped to Halfords and picked up a H1 bulb, went home and had a look under the bonnet.
Armed with just a screwdriver I managed to change the bulb within 10 mins. Flicked the headlight cover off using the screwdriver for a bit of leverage. Unpluged the headlight and flicked off the retaining clip. Removed the bulb.
Fitting was even easier - Put bulb in place, clip the retaining clip in place, plug in and replace cover.
Job done within 10 minutes with no prior experience of Fords.
Hope it helps
IMPORTANT!!! The retaining clip does NOT just flick off. Tried that and broke the plastic stop that holds the retainer clip and allows it to apply tension to the bulb! The retainer wire is held in place on the bottom by a screw and clip on the bottom and is locked into a plastic clip on top. To remove the wire, push the wire down and towards the passenger side of the car, it will dislodge and you can then lower it to remove the bulb. Once the bulb has been changed, you want to replace the wire the same way to protect the plastic clip. I don't know what I will do about the plastic clip now, the retaining wire has no tension and I'm afraid the bulb will not remain seated properly. However, knowing what I know now, I agree with the above answer: Done in 10 minutes without prior experience with Fords.
=== Just finished doing this. A small mirror and a flashlight make this job simple. It's very easy to do once you can see the top of the clip.
small mirror and flashlight are essential, look at the way the retaining wire seats before you unclip it. flat side of the bulb houseing sits at the bottom of the access hole. retaining wire clips bottom to top. I had a hard time with seating the new bulb and had to figure out the retaining wire clipped from bottom to top because I didn't look at it before I unclipped it. obviously fords designed this for ease of manufacter with very little regard to the average layman who would do the replacing.
