Has anyone changed bulbs or remove the tail lights before? care to share your experience? thanks!
Inside the trunk on the Focus Se Sedan, there is a plastic cover about 8 inches long and 5 inch wide. The top of the plastic cover plate is a slide and the bottom has a few clips. Simply pop the bottom open with a flat screw driver. (Gently) Once opened, you will see 2 black plastic wing nuts. Remove those and make sure not to let them fall. These two nuts are all that hold the tail assembly. There is a guide pin at the other end of the tail assembly which you will have to insert to replace the lens. turn the light bulb holder counter clockwise to remove the bulb. There you have it. You can remove the tail light assembly and change bulbs
