Hello, I am John, a Ford dealer technician.

I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.

 

I'm posting the Ford instructions on how to do this. Unfortunately you have to remove the headlight assembly to replace the bulb and to remove the headlight assembly you have to remove the bumper cover.

 

Click here for directions for headlight assembly

Click here for directions for bumper cover

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
