Open your hood and look at the headlight assembly from inside the hood. You will see screws that you can loosen to get the headlight covers off, and the bulbs should just be "screwed" in the headlight units. There shouldn't be any bolts and screws on the outside. Also, to adjust your lights, you should have an adjustment "screw" on top of the headlight unit when you open the hood.

SOURCE: 2004 ford focus headlight ajust ment

Your adjustment screws should be white nuts (adjustable with an allen wrench, or a socket, or a pair of pliers) located behind the headlamp assembly right up against the fender

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. You only need to do this and the aiming for your low beams as your high beams are on the same bulb

Your headlights should also say VOR. When you turn on your headlights, aim them right at the mark that you put on the wall, with the brightest cutoff directly under the mark

I have a ford focus 2001,when the headlights or any of the other lights are on they will flicker , ihave changed the alternator but thats made no differance

You probably have a loose or corroded connection somewhere. Clean the battery cables thoroughly, check for a loose connection where the negative cable bolts to the engine, and any other ground cables you can see.

Hi ford focus 2006 in ireland, want to change headlight bulb, but how do i get to it?

The owners manual does tell you - but it is not obvious.
Unscrew the headlight unit - 1 screw
Push down the 2 retaining clips at the back of the unit to release them (long screwdriver needed
Remove the headlight unit so you can work on it - it will come out - try getting the end in the middle of the car out first rather than the wing side
The rest is easy as you have space to work.

It is easier to put the unit back than take it out apart from the clip on the wing side !
