Trying to replace the brake lights in my Ford

I am trying to replace the passenger brake light bulb in my 2005 Ford Escape. I unscrewed the 2 phillips head screw but something else is holding the light assembly on. It appears to be in the wheel well next to the jack, but I can't see what it is...can only get my hand in there and feel 2 plastic nuts or something like that. I dont want to force it though.

How to change the globe to the headlight of my Kia Pregio GS 2005 van


To replace headlight bulb of kia pregio van: You only need Phillips screw driver and 10mm socket or open wrench. Open the hood, remove front grill with 4 phillips screw. This will give you room for your hand to pull out the headlight housing later on. Next is remove the signal light housing by unscrewing the phillips screw on top of the headlight housing then pull out the signal light housing and remove the bulb. You will see 2 pcs 10mm bolts on the side which hold the headlight. Loosened and remove the bolts on headlight holder then pull the headlight sideward. Remove power supply socket before removing it completely from the van. Remove bulb socket, spring clip, and busted bulb and replace with new one. Reassemble the disassembled parts in reverse order. That's it, will take you only 10 minutes.

How do you replace a turn signal bulb at the rear of a 2009 ford escape?


On most Ford Trucks and SUV's there will be two philips head screws on the exterior of the light. Undo these two screws and the whole lens will pull outwards. Unplug the bulb and unscrew the retainer - reverse instructions with new bulb in place.
On a newer Ford, there may be an access panel inside the cargo area. If there is, you will gain access to the bulb and retainer from there.

Change out a taillight


You want to change the tail light bulb?

The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



    Instructions

    1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

    2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

    3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

    4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

    5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.

How do I replace my front passenger turn signal on my 2003 Ford Escape?


well its a tricky situation, we do not know if this is the best way but we made it work...

1. start the engine and turn the tires to the left all the way, shut off the engine. in front of the front passenger tire there will be 4 phillup head screws. remove all 4 phillup head screws that are attached to the bumper molding, and remove the 10 millimeter hex head bolt that is near the bottom screw. then spread the plastic molding away from the bumber molding which will give you limited access to the blinker bulb assembly. now this is the tight spot. quarter turn counter clickwise and remove the bulb assembly from the lamp fixture. carefully spread the tabs that hold the bulb assembly to the socket. and then replace and remove the bulb and then put it all together again. or you could go and get it fixed. Good luck!

Head lamp bulb change


I've done this once, so i'll do my best to help you here. You'll need some sort of light you can shine to do this. First you need to unplug the headlight plug from the assembly. Next there will be a rubbery boot you also need to take off, this just pulls right off. This next part is where it gets sticky. There is a phillips screw that holds down a flexible pin/clamp/whatever you want to call it down against the back of the bulb. Unscrew the screw enough to remove the pin, you won't need to completely remove the screw though to remove the pin. Once you have the pin removed, you can then get at the bulb. The bulb itself has 3 points, like a down-ward arrow. Line up the 2 points that are closer together with the top and just slide the bulb in WITHOUT TOUCHING THE GLASS of the bulb. If you touch the glass, say goodbye to the bulb's life. To put it back together, get the bulb in, the pin screwed down and reverse the rest of the process. Hope this helps.
