SOURCE: need to replace the left

Check in the trunk area or the back end of the lens to see if the bulb is accessible that way.

Autozone says this about bulbs:

Bulbs used in most other lighting fixtures fit into sockets and are held in place by spring tension or mechanical force.
f19-42.gif Common type of automotive bulbs.
Bulbs are coded with numbers for replacement purposes. Bulbs with different code numbers might appear physically similar but have different wattage ratings.
There are two basic construction designs for exterior lights: those in which the lens is removed and then the bulb removed from the front, and those in which the light assembly must first be removed, then the socket from the back of the assembly, and finally the bulb from the socket.

  • Removing the lens from the latter type assembly could cause serious damage to the reflector due to dust and other contaminants.
  • Wiping the reflector surface to clean it can also seriously reduce the light's brightness. Therefore, do not remove the lens from light assemblies in which the socket and bulb are removed from the back of the assembly.
  • The bulbs are held in their sockets in a number of ways.
  • Some bulbs are simply pushed into and pulled out of their sockets, and some are screwed in and out.
  • To release a bayonet-style bulb from its socket, the bulb is pressed in and turned counterclockwise.
  • The blade-mount style is removed by pulling the bulb off the mounting tab, then turning the bulb and removing it from the retaining pin.
  • To replace a bulb, remove the bulb accordingly from its socket, and insert a new bulb.

Analog Clock in Ford Fusion 2009 has no more light


Remove the instrument panel center finish panel by gently pulling rearward using a small thin prying tool such as a small putty knife. This will release the spring clips. Disconnect the electrical connection to the clock. Near the top corner of the rear of the clock is a small lamp assembly that screws out. Mine had a black plastic base but the one I replaced it with had an orange base. I ordered an Audi/VW part #4A0919040C as it was substantially cheaper than what the Ford dealer wanted. When you remove the lamp, you will notice the bulb has a green skin over it. You want to try to remove it carefully so you can re-use it on the replacement lamp. The best way to describe it is that it resembles a minature condom. I soaked it in some soapy water to loosen it up and make it easier to remove. A little soap also helps when you place it on the new lamp. Replace the new lamp, re-attach the power and press the instrument panel trim back in place and you are good to go.

How to replace light bulb on a clock 2004 Honda Odessey


Here are the steps:

1. Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
2. Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
3. Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.

Here are the details:

FIRST - Disconnect the battery. Be careful to locate the radio security code and radio station memory locations before you disconnect though. I chose to disconnect the ground (black wire) from the battery. Be careful to put the cable away from the battery terminal.



Step 1: Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
a. Put on your parking break. You'll want to prevent the car from moving because you will soon put the car in gear.
b. Put your keys and turn to the starting position (but don't try to start the car). This allows the gear lever to move.
c. Move the gear shift to lowest gear. This puts the gear shift lever to a place nearly out of the way of the panel so that you can pry it out.
d. Using bare hands, pull smartly on the plastic edge closest to the steering wheel. Pry out the panels by hand as they are both held by tabs. This is hardest to do the first time. Keep in mind that these are pieces of plastic, so be careful. Once panels are out, let them dangle. You only need access to the instrument panel screws.

Step 2: Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
e. Remove the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.
o Two on left of steering wheel
o Two on top of instrument cluster (upside-down)
o Four on right side of steering wheel
f. Wiggle/pry out the instrument cluster panel. Be careful as the center is held in stronger than the sides. In addition to screws, there are different tabs that assist in holding this in place.
g. Before removing the instrument cluster panel, disconnect the clock and emergency light electrical connectors. While the clock connector disconnects easily, the emergency light has a locking tab that needs to be pushed in to disconnect. I used a small screwdriver to push in the tab to get the connector to disconnect.
h. Remove the instrument panel. Turn it over and locate the clock's protective cover.
i. Open the clock's protective cover by loosening the tabs. Be very gentle to these tabs.
j. Once the cover is removed locate the light bulb.

Step 3: Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
k. Unscrew the light bulb and remove.
l. Install the new light bulb. Check the light bulb before you install it. Be careful when rotating the new light bulb. in place. I've read in other posts that the light bulbs are VERY sensitive. I used a small screwdriver with plastic on the head to screw the light bulb. in.
m. Replace the clock's protective cover.
o. Reconnect the clock and emergency light's electrical connectors.

Step 4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
p. Fit the instrument cluster panel back into it's original position. Be careful with the fan vents. I suggest aligning the fan vents first, then fitting the panel.
q. Screw in the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.

Step 5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.
r. Push both panels back into place.
s. Move the gear shift lever back to park.
t. Remove the car key.
u. [Optional - disengage the parking brake]

LAST - Reconnect the battery.

TEST - Reinsert your keys and turn them to the starting position (but don't start the car). The clock light should light up.

Note: Because the power has been reset, you will need to enter the factory stereo code and reset your radio stations.

How do you get into the bulb area to changr a head light on a 2008 ford fusion?


Most newer cars use a collar type clamp to hold the bulbs in place. Look under the hood and find the wires that lead into the headlight area. Feel for a collar type assembly that you can unscrew and gently pull the old bulb out. Unplug the bulb and replace by reversing the procedure.
