How to replace low beam bulb

I retired after 40 years as a Ford Master Tech. My 2005 Escape has a low beam bulb out. I examined the headlamp assembly to determine the best way to go after the bulb. It appears it is easier to remove the entire light assembly then take the back cover off. Is this correct? I wish they would make the engineers work on the line for 5 years on every difficult repair. Maybe then we would see an easier way to fix any problems.

    I have the same problem with the driver's side headlight on a 2001 Ford Escape. I don't see how to access the low-beam bulb to replace it and haven't had any luck finding the answer online.

You need to remove the back cover of the headlight inside the engine bay. There you will see both low and high beam bulbs. The low beam is the one that is to the outside crner of the vehicle, give it half a turn ad pull it right out. You do not need to remove the whole light assembly. The driver side bulb will be a little bit difficult due to space but it can be done.

I have a 2006 ford escape and the passenger head light low beam will not work. Tried replacing the bulb, and check fuses nothing is working.. what else can I try?


Both your low beam and your high beam is protected by the same fuse, so it makes sense that the fuse is OK if the high beam is working on the passenger side. There are 3 fuses for the headlamps. Fuse #13 in the Battery Junction Box (20 Amp). If this fuse is blown, the headlamp relay will not have any power and neither high nor low beam on either side will work (you will have no headlamps at all) Then there is Fuses #2 and #3 (15 Amp) in the Battery Junction Box. #2 goes to the left low and high beam and #3 goes to the right low and high beam.
The headlamp switch uses a SINGLE CIRCUIT to control BOTH sides at the same time, so if one side works, the switch cannot be the problem. The headlamp relay provides power for fuses #2 and #3 and we already ascertained that these fuses must have power since we have working lights on both sides, so the relay cannot be the problem. A replacement bulb has already been tried, so that pretty much leaves us with a bad lamp socket. (Most likely cause) or a bad connection at splice #S122, which is located in the main wiring harness near the breakout for the left headlamp. (RED/BLACK wire)

What are the best bulbs to put into my 2002 ford escape xls


Which bulbs are you refering to?
Headlights? I went with Sylvania SilverStar H4 bulbs. I was really impressed with the brightness. The bad news... I seem to have to replace them more often; like, 1 or 2 per year.

Another alternative is to upgrade to the 2005-2006 headlamp assemblies. Rumor says they will fit. They use a different bulb.

How do i ajust the headlights on my 2005 ford ranger?


courtesy of expert super__guy

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
