I have to wonder why Ford made these things a PITA to change. On other cars it's a one minute job. On my '06 the owner's manual told exactly how to remove the thing......easy enough. But I could not seem to line up the new bulb when I tried to reinstall the thing. After much cursing, I figured out the trick....

There are three little tabs that have to line up with three slots on the bulb. While you're doing this you cannot see a thing from the rear....but. You can see the tabs and slots from the front, through the headlight lens. Look closely at the photo....the two arrows point out two of the three slots/tabs. After figuring that out, the job was fairly easy. Not as easy as it could have been however....

Well you can't put a square block in a round hole. But yeah, if you're doing it for the ever in your life, I could see where it might be a problem.

It does only take about a minute or so. The hardest part is getting the rubber covers on over the back of the headlamps.
