SOURCE: replace the headlight bulb
Remove the plastic access panel by pressing down on the tab at the top of the penel and pulling the top of the panel towards the engine and off. Needle nose pliers may help with the next steps to remove the spring clips. There are 2 bulbs, the top large bulb is the low beam. To remove it, first remove the socket attached to it, then press the top of the metal spring clip towards the front of the car and towards the passenger side (look closely at the clip to see the latch holding it. The clip then swings back towards the engine. Remove the old bulb, install the new bulb, replace the spring clip, re-connect the socket. (Don't touch the bulb, if you do clean it off with a lint free cloth and alcohol). To replace the lower bulb (parking light), remove the socket, then release the lower end of the spring clip, look closely and you'll see the latch holding it. You have to press it towards the front of the car and swing it towards the passenger side. It will swing up and release the bulb. Replace with new bulb, replace spring clip, connect socket. Don't forget to replace the plastic cover panel by inserting the bottom tabs into the sockets and snapping it closed at the top by pressing it towards the front of the car.

There are two tabs that hold the Headlight assembly in place. Pull one up, then holding the Headlight assembly, pull the other one up. Locate the light that is burned out. Remove the harness from the light, then twist the light to remove. Replace with new one, and reverse process. Be careful to not touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil from your fingers and hands will shorten the life of the bulb

It's not hard. Open the hood, locate the backside of the lite thats out(follow the wires) give the housing a slight counter-clockwise turn to remove it.
The bulb should pull out. Use a tissue to re-install the new bulb, as the oils on your fingers will cause the new one to overheat and burn out, prematurly

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
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.
