Replace headlight, what is the bulb number, and tools required, also what needs to be done to get to the light.

If you go to the local parts store like advanced auto they can tell you which bulb you need. They usually install from the rear and do not require special tools. Lee

Do I need a special tool to change the bulb in my 2006 dodge caravan headlight?

NO - the bulb is held in with a lock ring that can be turned by hand (if you can get your hand in) and removed with no tools. Look under the hood where the wiring connector connects to the headlight and you will see the ring around it. Remove the wiring connector, turn the lock ring counterclockwise until it pops loose, then wiggle the bulb out. It is held in by a rubber seal and may need coaxing. Installation is the reverse. It is recommended you replace both bulbs (right and left) and keep the working one as a spare. Avoid touching the glass part of the new bulbs.

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.

Trying to replace light bulbs, front and rear

No usually for GM vehicles there are two pins on the headlight that you pull out and up. they are L shaped upside down. If not there are bolts holding the headlights on. But no special tool needed, it is a simple job, once the headlights are off twist the bulb counter clock wise, if they have a notch depress it and remove the bulb unhook it from the harness and you are done. Installation is reverse of removal.
