Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
Sounds like the bulb has possibly melted the bulb socket and lamp housing. Have you visually checked this area and or can you attach some pictures of the damaged area?

Hello again Chris here,
Give me the name of the person who disconnected it and what dealership it is and I'll call him up and ask him what needed replaced.
He most likely meant to replace that entire passenger side Rear Lamp Assembly. Here it shows the 3 nuts.
It is expensive, like $750 so you should make sure, http://www.fordparts.com/Commerce/CatalogResults.aspx?y=2006&m=Mercury&mo=Montego#Search
