Need to replace a headlight, is this as easy as unscrewing the 3 visible bolts, sliding out the unit, disconnecting the electrics and replacing with new unit? Don't particularly want to pay a dealership if I can easily do the job myself, anyone any experience of this on a Fusion?

Have something to contribute?

Pull the headlamp out of its lower mounting.
Pass the upper guide lug of the headlamp forward under the fender.






Disconnect the headlamp assembly plugs.
