How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 2000-2005 Mercury Sable Headlight Replacement

Fits Years: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005
All Mercury Sable Headlights for sale

Tools required:
  • 8mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Phillips screwdriver

  • Flathead screwdriver

Step 1: Lift the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Lift the 2 retaining tabs that hold the headlight assembly in place.

These tabs are located on the back end of the assembly, and accessible from the top.

Step 3: Loosen and remove the 8mm bolt located near the radiator.

Step 4: You can now pull the headlight from the vehicle.

Step 5: Disconnect the headlight assembly's wiring harness.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new bulbs, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not, simply transfer the bulbs and sockets to the new assembly. This process takes just a few moments! Also, you can transfer the wiring harness using a Phillips screwdriver, if necessary.

Step 6: Connect the wiring harness to the new headlight assembly.

Step 7: Move the assembly into position, and secure it with the retaining tabs.

Step 8: Tighten the 8mm retaining bolt.
