Bulb does not twist,pull straight out.wd40 won't hurt,wiggle it a bit.if glass is broken,use needle nose pliers or pry it out,side to side.

I would not use WD40 for this - instead use pliers to pull the bulb out. Since its the old bulb dont worry about breaking the glass, just pull it all out. Most likely its gunk and corrosion, and WD40 will make this worse. Once the old bulb is out just make sure the area is clean when you put the new bulb in. If you want, you can use some dialectic grease on the contacts - get it at any autoparts store.

Is there a trick to getting to the rear turn signal on a 2003 ford focus hatchback. I had removed the screw to the lens cover but I still cannot gain access to the turn signal bulb to replace it.


Replacing tail/brake/backup lights and turn signal bulbs (coupe)

1. Make sure the headlamp control

is in the OFF position and then

open the hatchback.

2. From inside the luggage

compartment remove the wing nut

of the rear light assembly cover.

3. Using a Phillips screw driver

remove the screw. The lamp is still

retained by a spring loaded clip.

Remove by gently pulling out the

light housing.

4. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise as far as possible and pull it

out.

5. Pull the bulb straight out of the socket.

Install in reverse order.

You will need to look in trunk and pull back the covering over the light area on the side you need to replace.

Replace bulb ford focus


i have a 2003 st170 and to replace my bulbs you have to release the flaps on the back of the light by pushing the metal clip down. remove the cover completely.
on the bulb will be a metal clip i think if you push the end which will be towards the wing of the car down and then it will swing towards you and release the bulb.
remove bulb and replace with new.
try not to handle the bulb with your bare skin use a tissue to handle it with.
when fitting the new bulb make sure you get the groove in the bulb inline with the one in the housing this way the bulb will sit in the correct position its easy enough.

repeat for the opposite side... im not sure about your car but with the st170 you have to remove the battery in order to replace the drivers side bulbs.

i hope thats of some help to you.

Change rear signal bulb on 2002 ford focus wagon


Open the rear tailgate There are 2 screws that hold light housing in place.. Remove the screws then pull the housing outwards till the clip behind it springs. You then need to knock the housing sideways (outwards) to free the 2 prongs that attach housing to the car body.
Unclip the rear housing from the back of the light unit & change the bulb.
