! Guide ! Mk7 Fiesta Bulb Change
Posted 18 April 2012 - 01:44 PM
I ended up fitting Redline bulbs to my head light, sides, high beams and front fogs and they walked all over the Philips and Osram range! Whiter light, brighter light... And the price, loads cheaper!!!!

Anyone known how to take the rear lights off? Is it just unbolt and pull Like the front ones? Cheers
2 screws that you can see on front then a butterfly nut behind it. Have to peel back the carpet and get your hand behind it.

Changed by headlight bulbs to Halfords Extreme Brilliance and sidelights to Halfords laser blue while I was at it.
The white clip isn't too bad although I can only assume the unit is clipped back into it when I replaced the unit as the rivet and bolts lined up fine. You can't actually see the bottom of the headlamp unit to be sure.
This is the first car I have change the dipped beam bulbs in myself, much easier when you can take the whole unit inside and so it on your kitchen table rather than trying to stand on your head and do it all by feel by the car
With the nights drawing in I thought it was about time I swapped out the OEM bulbs which, although fine in town, seem to have a pretty short hot spot out in the sticks.

Old school really distributor/coil era, i.e. Ford Anglia, Escort Mk2.
Anyway just bought a Fiesta 2009 1.4 Auto for my wife, 14K excellent condition.
I was looking at how to change the bulbs out of curiosity, especially the n/s.
Now I would not normally suggest this, but for £6.99 it might be amusing to watch Halfords staff trying to change the front lamps!

This is the indicator bulb, to remove it, one turn anti-clockwise... while not handling the glass. There is ONE way the bulb will fit into the holder again. Line up the notches on the bulb with the gaps on the holder. Slot in and turn clockwise. Done
Now line up the tabs of the holder with the headlight and put it back in the headlight. This is abit fiddle. Take your time, line up the plastic tabs and you'll feel it go into the headlight. Then its one turn clockwise the lock it in place and seal the deal.
Do the bulbs have offset tabs or not? I have bulbs that I was going to fit to my Focus but gave up and now want to de-tango my Fiesta and I'm not sure if the bulbs will fit......
p.s the bulbs I have for it do NOT have off set tabs.
