Push the Mirror FORWARD, up close to the pivot poit there is a small torx head screw - unscrew that.

- 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

To install:
- 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.

WARNING:
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!

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

SOURCE: replacing headlight bulb ford focus

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 screws off. 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.

  • Other tools may be found that will work.
remove the nuts that hold the tail lamp in place and gently pull from bracket.

Lamp out still on after replacing lamp


I've seen this all too often with inexpensive bulbs assuming of course there is not another bulb out and/or you have excessive resistance in the lamp circuit

try another bulb from another manufacture

sometimes the only solution, believe it or not is a factory bulb

How do I change the headlight bulb in my 1997 thunderbird?


Access the headlight bulb from under the hood. There should be a clip (screw on or snap) holding the bulb in place. Carefully unplug the socket from bulb and remove clip and slide bulb out. Installation is reverse of removal. Be careful NOT to touch the glass surface of the new bulb, as the oils from skin can cause it to shatter when heated.

How can I replace my rear tailight on my 2003 Thunderbird?


you should be able to remove the taillight lens. open your trunk,you may have to pull back the carpet covering the taillight retainer nuts.There should be 3 or 4 retainer nuts,these will either be a plastic wing nut style,or metal nut. remove all of them and gently pull on the lens,it should come out with very little resistance.the bulb fixtures will generally turn counterclockwise. replace burnt bulbs and replace the lens. hope this helps.
