Sorry I didn't cover the main beam bulb or other lights.
However I had a lovely moped driver use the front of my Fiesta as a parking bay recently, resulting in a very compacted front end. I also lost both headlights, so I may revisit this guide in the near future.

Also i've had a few people request they link / copy paste this guide for other forums.
While I really appreciate the PM's telling or requesting the use of the guide. It's not needed use this guide whenever and however you see fit.
I'll try and get rid of the stupid Username tags in the photo's that photo bucket added.

Cheers

Sorry to hear about the car mate, I found this guide very useful when I first changed my bulbs.

Hi

Just wondering if anyone can offer me some advice. I am after changing the side lights on my white Fiesta and i want to know if anyone has fitted the Philips Blue Vision Ultra W5W bulbs to their car. I am worried that they will look blue when I have them on. At present the stock are OK when I have the dipped and main beam on, but the side lights seem to have a slight yellow tint to them.

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I would also take any recommendations for replacement dipped bulbs as I have no doubt that as soon as I upgrade the sides, I will be wanting to do the dipped bulbs

Swany

I couldn't find a replacement clip by searching on web (without part number) so ended up purchasing one from local Ford garage. Cost = £5.38! For a piece of plastic! I now have the part number though so hopefully I will be able to find it cheaper if I ever have to purchase one again. Hopefully this will teach me to be more careful next time.

For anyone interested the part number for the clip is: 1702129
