How do you change the headlight bulb on Ford Ka

Hi there et73ftjy , Ok the headlight design on the Ka is pretty poor ,

the correct way to get access to the headlight bulb is to partially remove the headlamp assembly ,

to do this you need to seperate the the bumper/wing from the body on the affected side

remove the 3 screws on the top of the centre bumpergrill

Then remove 1 phillps screw from the underside of the vehicle at the lowest part of the bumper/wing , then gently pull/pop he 4 securing clips that hold the bumper/ wing to the body ( i would buy 4 new clips from a ford parts department as these tend to break ) after doing this there are 3 x 10mm bolt/screws holding the headlight in

 

Trying to fit the bulb with the headight in place Can be done but is very tricky and testing , especially on the drivers side

it is also sometimes possible to access the bulb from the inner wing depending on year/model of vehicle ( partially remove the inner wing shield )

 

if you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

Kind regards XXXXX XXXXX
