Pop the hood and then twist or pull the cap covering the back of the headlight assembly and then push the metal retaining clip inwards slightly to release it and then disconnect the harness and the bulb should pop right out

How do I change the passenger side headlight bulb on my 2006 Ford Lincoln Mark Lt? Is there a video? Do I need to take the windsheild fluid jug apart to get into the back of the light?

For the new body style 2004 ( not the 2004 Heritage or lightning ) there are 3 bolts to remove, and 1 tab, and the headlamp unit pulls out form the front.

From the owners manual

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

How do you change the headlight bulbs in a 2003 Ford Escape?

I'm pretty sure the 2001 thru 2004 Escape takes an H4 bulb for the headlights. (I have a 2002) Both headlight bulbs can be be replaced from under the hood. No tools required.

There are some pictures at the end of my collection that may help.

As I recall, you need to squeeze a clip on the harness plug to get it off.
Then, pull off the big rubber boot.
There is a wire clip holding the bulb in. This can be tricky if you never did it. It will tick you off when you figure out how easy it is.
On the driver's side of the bulb, push the upper wire retainer towards the front of the vehicle a little and then upwards; that should unhook it.
Then, Again on the driver's side, push the lower retainer towards the front of the vehicle a little and then DOWN; that should unhook it.
The wire latch will then swing out of the way, and the bulb can be removed.
The bulb can only be inserted one way.
Good luck
