For the interiour main light, i.e in the headliner when the doors open you say it is a W6W?

I cannot seem to find a W6W bulbs, did you mean a H6W mate ?

Have something to contribute?

you say this is required for ALL bulbs, yet I've just managed to change both H7 dipped bulbs without the need to remove the whole unit - merely prized off the rubber covers and twisted out the holders. Yes its fiddly, and removing the fuse cover makes it slightly easier, but once you've done it once its an under-a-minute job... I will be using your handy guide to change the side lights though, fancy blue ones came free with the headlamps...

If you have tiny hands like mine, yes you don't need to remove the whole unit. However its alot easier, less chance of touching the glass of each bulb during replacement (reduce bulb lifespan) & guaranteeing a secure fit. :huh:
Regardless,
Glad people are making use of the guide :)

Hi Rogue, wonderful guide!! Would not have the patience to do that (well maybe I would) I added some led strips under my headlamp units (LOOKS AWESOME!!! I will post pictures next)
I was wondering... I asked some local dealer (Mauritius) to change my headlight and full bulbs, but I was a bit scared of using counterfeit parts (very common here) and we actually changed them and tested first without reconnecting... and they started smelling like burnt plastic, so I reoved it. Do you reckon the Philips 55W blue vision are perfect for this? That's the ones you installed right?

And also is there a guide for the back lamps?

Hi Rogue, wonderful guide!!


Thank You :D

Shouldn't smell of burning plastic, that's for sure. I've not had any trouble with my bulbs (headlights or sides) since installing them along time ago. So the 55's in my opinion are perfect.

And also is there a guide for the back lamps?


I haven't changed anything else on my ZS so I haven't looks at any other bulb replacements :unsure:
I know that other members have changed Every single bulb on the fiesta, so if you search the forum you should come up with someone with knowledge.
Or if your reading this and you have changed those bulbs like the fogs and rear lights feel free to add some photo's/ instructions or make your own guide
I know that the rear lights are quite fiddly to change, pulling down the carpet and unscrewing it from the hold or something.
