Headlight Fuses?

i have a zetec motor. today, i was reconnecting my ebay headlight connectors back to the headlight bulbs (h7's) and the connectors came out of the metal clip and touched each other, causing a short. i believe it blew a fuse, because now the driver's side headlight does not light up, even when connected. however, the passenger side headlight works fine. checking both the engine bay and the interior fuse boxes, i cant find anything that diffrentiates between the driver's side and passenger's side headlights.

my question is: are there two seperate fuses for each headlight? if so, which ones are they, what is the amperage, and where are they located? if this isnt the case, which steps should i take from here? i know the bulb isnt burnt out because the connectors were no where near the bulb when they arced.

any help is greatly appreciated.

randy.

Looking at the schematic for your car, there are two relays.

high beam (C1005)
low beam (C1006)

From that point, there are four fuses.

Left lowbeam (F16) 10 amp
Right lowbeam (F17) 10 amp
Left high beam (F26) 10 amp
Right high beam (F27) 10 amp

Hope this helps.
