You defiantly need to get the stripped screw out. When I encounter a stripped screw, I use my dremil tool with a cutting wheel on it to cut the screw off. After you do finally get the screw cut off ( and this can defiantly be a pain straken ordeal ) you should be able remove the remaining screw bottom with a pair of needle nose pliers. Replace the lamp at that point and find a screw with a bigger diameter ( a serf tapping would work well ) and tread it back. Good Luck. I do know you are in for a frustrating time, but with a lot of Patience, you'le do well.

How do you remove the head lamp assembly on a 1993


1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood.
2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying.
3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside.
4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it.
5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb.
6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical.
7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten.
8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.

How do you replace a brake light?


serjoijr: To replace the bulb, you must remove the tail lamp housing.
Open the tailgate. There are two screws which retain the lamp housing to the body. You can see them when you open the tail gate, One is near the top and one is near the bottom. They are a phillips head type screw.
Remove both screws and pull the lamp housing directly backwards. DO NOT TWIST IT TO THE SIDE! The housing has a pin on the opposite side which interlocks with the body, keeping it in place on that side.
Once you have pulled the housing away from the body, you will see the lamp sockets and wiring harness. These sockets usually rotate to one side or another to interlock with the housing. Once the socket is removed, you can replace the bulb and return the housing back to the original spot.

I can't seeem to find out how to put the new lamp back into the t.v


Hi,
if this is either of the 51" or 56" DLP tv's, it is very simple.
-Make sure tv is UNPLUGGED!
-Open the side compartment on left side of tv as you are facing it from the front.
-Take off the door and you will see the lamp housing.There are 2 screws facing you.Unscrew these and set the screws aside.
-Now pull on the housing a little and it should slide out.You may need to wiggle it a little.
-Set housing down on table or somewhere with good light.Make sure not to touch bulb of either the old lamp or new as oils from fingers can distort picture.
-Now,undo screws on shiny metal piece.There are 2.Take off metal housing piece.
-You now see the back of the bulb.If you look at the lamp from the front,you will notice where the 2 wires are fitted into a bracket with 2 screws.
-Unscrew those screws to loosen the bracket.The replacement lamp should have the exact same bracket.If not you can just undo the wires to the old lamp and connect the same wire harness to the new one.
-once the wire bracket is unscrewed, pull it out of its fitting and then unscrew the 4 screws holding the lamp in.
-Take notice of how the shiny metal clamp-fitting is situated to hold the lamp in place so you can put it back on the right way.
-Once loosened, the bulb should be able to come out and you can put the new one right in it's place. Make sure to keep the top wire connector on the bulb at about 11 o'clock and that a nub on the bulb fits through a spacer on the shiny metal clamp-fitting.
-Now tighten the 4 screws on the clamp-fitting and make sure the wire screw connectors on bulb are tight as well.
-Take the now loose rubber-covered wires and tighten them into the bracket-fitting the way the old ones were,with plugs and lamp facing the same way.
-With everything now tight,put metal housing back on and tighten the 2 screws down.
-Take the whole unit and slowly slide it back into the tv making sure that the plugs slide into their rightful place.This should be easy,but may require a wiggle or two.
-Now screw in the 2 screws you have left into the plastice mounting piece. Re-attach the door and plug the tv in.Wait a few minutes and then turn on tv.
-It should work.If not, unplug tv and check all connections.
TIP:Do not put a cold bulb in and then turn on immediately.I like to let the bulb sit in the tv with it plugged in for a while until the bulb is warmed and ready.
Good Luck! -Chris

I'm assuming that you already have the housing out of the TV. If not remove the lamp cover panel (two phillips screws), Locate and unscrew the two chromed flat blade screws that hold the module in place and gently pull the housing out. Now locate the three locking tabs on the housing. There is a large one on the bulb face side, and two smaller ones on the mesh screen side near the handle end. Using a thin bladed screw driver, slide it under the curved edge next to each of the small tabs and gently pry up to pop the side cover off of the tabs. Rotate the back cover (three sided) so that the small tabs come clear of the rectangular holes in the cover. (It should pivot on the third tab). Now use the screw driver to gently pry the U shaped clip off and over the third tab. Once all three tabs have been released the back half should just slide back and off the front half. Reassembly is basically just sliding the back cover back on until the tabs lock into place. While the bulb is out blow all the dust out of all THREE screens (there is a small one next to the greyish metal plate).

Replace the bulb by removing all the internal screws necessary to release it from the housing, noting how everything goes back together, including which wire goes to which terminal (If your bulb does not come with new wires you'll have to swap them to the new bulb), and where the "UP" marking on the bulb goes. Drawing a picture or better yet taking a few pictures is a good idea. When installing the new bulb do not touch the bulb with your bare hands (use latex gloves). Supposedly the skin oils can cause the bulb to fail prematurely. Finally make sure that the wires do not touch the bulb and are as far away from it as possible after it is back together, if necessary open it back up and bend the wires to reposition them.

Lamp location


No, that was wrong advice. On this model, there is a large door on the right side (as you face the screen) of the TV at the bottom. Remove several screws to take the cover off. Inside, looking along the back of the TV (not toward the screen), you'll see what looks like a wire bail (handle) on a square inset piece about 3 inches square. Remove the screws and pull on the wire bail and the lamp housing will come out with the lamp contained inside. Make sure you unplug the TV before doing any of this. If you are replacing the entire housing with a new lamp you can just plug in the new housing and replace the screws and cover. If you are placing a new bulb in the existing housing you take off 4 small screws and remove the metal cage from the housing, remove and replace the bulb the same way the original is in there, put it back together, and you're done.
