How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 2003-2004 Ford Focus Headlight Replacement

Fits Years: 2003, 2004
All Ford Focus Headlights for sale

Tools required:
  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Phillips screwdriver

  • Flathead screwdriver (small)

Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the clips that secure the radiator cover in place. Remove the cover.

Step 3: Twist the parking light sockets and pull the bulbs from the assembly.

Step 4: Loosen and remove four 10mm bolts that hold the grille in place. Remove the grille once completed.

Step 5: Loosen and remove the three 10mm bolts that line the top of the headlight assembly.

Step 6: Loosen the final 10mm bolt beneath the assembly.

This bolt is only reached from underneath the vehicle. You may need to jack the car up to reach it.

Step 7: You can now pull the headlight from the vehicle.

Step 8: Disconnect the headlight'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!

Step 9: Connect the wiring harness to the new headlight assembly.

Step 10: Secure the headlight by tightening the four 10mm mounting bolts.

Step 11: Reattach the grille by tightening the 10mm retaining bolts.

Step 12: Insert the parking light bulbs into the light casing, and turn them clockwise to secure them in place.

Step 13: Re-engage the clips that hold the radiator cover in place.
