Lscman The factory manual for 2005 to 2007 cars is very confusing when it comes to headlight bulb replacement. The bulb procedure is in a subsection showing headlight assembly removal, so it appears to require the underbelly pan cover and radiator grille to be removed. This totally unnecessary. As other's commented, the Focus is one of the few remaining Ford cars that allows headlight bulb replacement from an access hole in the engine compartment (without having to remove the headlight housing assembly). Taurus owners aren't so lucky lol.

puppetman ok i removed the cruise servo and got to the bulb just fine. thanks again guys +rep to you both for bearing with me

puppetman ooh ok. yeah all i want to do is replace the bulb. i just thought removig the housing would simplify it but i guess not. on my previous car, and on my moms hundai, the housing would just unbolt with 2 or 3 easy screws and then you could swap the bulb.

thanks guys i will look into this later today when i get back from school

bluefront What do you want to do......just change bulbs or the whole housing? If you just want new bulbs, it's silly to remove the entire housing. That would take 3x as long.......

Justin J The cruise servo is right next to what looks like an air filter housing. It's a black/silver box with a cable coming out of it that goes to the throttle body. 2 or 3 10MM bolts and it's off. Then it's wide open to the back of the headlight. The black plastic piece between the headlights does not have to come off.

puppetman then would it just be easier if i did it like this guy says, http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=59986, and i remove the whole headlight? thats really my question..i was just wondering if there was an easier way

bluefront On my '06 (same as an '07).........On the passenger side, remove the rubber boot from the back of the housing, and unsnap the connector from the bulb and pull it out of the way.

Reach your fingers in there and turn the plastic holder ring counter-clockwise, about 1/4 turn or so. Then the bulb and ring will just pull out. Reverse the procedure to reinstall....that bulb has a location tab, so it will only go back in at a certain angle.

On the driver side you may have to remove a few pieces.....I have an SRI, so I have to remove my air filter to get to the bulb. First time I did the whole job.....I almost pulled my hair out getting the attachment ring loose.

puppetman cruise servo? would that be the plastic center peice thats over the grill? i didnt try taking that off because i didnt think i would be able to reach in far enough to get to the bulb

Justin J Just unbolt the cruise servo, take off the rubber boot on the headlight and remove the bulb? I've never removed the headlights to replace bulbs on the focus. Pass side is easier, no part removal necessary.
