HOW TO: Replace License Plate Bulb 2008 2011 Focus

How to replace the license plate bulbs on the 2008 2011 Ford Focus

Note. My car is incredibly dirty, this is nothing to point out.

  1. Phillips driver
  2. Flat head driver
  3. Cardboard or something to sit on
  4. Sylvania 6418

Step one. Remove the two screws holding the bulb in place

Step two. Using the flat head pry the clear plastic off.

Note Do Not attempt to pry off the black portion of the housing.

Step three. Pull apart the prongs holding the bulb in place.

Step four. Put the new bulb into between the prongs and put back into the black portion of the housing. It should be able to stay by itself.

Step five. Put the two phillips screws back into place, turn on lights and make sure that the new bulbs work.

Just bring me coffee!
