Question about 1990 Ford Festiva
Hello, the Festiva headlights are very easy to replace, but you have to remove the sidemarker lamps and grill first. That is the trick to the job. I verified the procedure with my Festiva shop manual, so I am sure about it. To remove the side lamp, it has an arm in the upper left that you remove the screw from and then the screws on the outboard side of the side lamp. Once the grill is also removed, you can get to the headlamp holding bolts. Remove those. Then to get the headlamp free from the frame you need to remove the headlamp adjusting screws on the sides. Lastly, remove the wiring from the rear by turning the ring counter-clockwise. That's it. To reinstall the new one, do it in the reverse of the removal procedure. You will probably have to align the headlight beam or at least check it after installing the new headlight. It is adjusted with the headlight adjustment screws that change the angle of the headlight.
