Hi,

Procedure is :-

Step 1 Open the hood and remove the electrical connector running to the back of the headlight ballast.

Step 2 Turn the headlight bulb counterclockwise with your hand to unlock the bulb.

Step 3 Pull the bulb out of the housing.

Step 4 Insert the new bulb into the headlight housing, and align the tabs on the bulb with the notches on the housing.

Step 5 Turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into the housing.

Step 6 Reconnect the electrical connector to the back of the headlight bulb ballast.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

My 2006 F150 abs light would come on after driving it for a few miles. I changed the rear sensor and it still didn't correct the problem. I had the brake pads replaced and cleaned the front sensors.

My front and rear park lights were working fine, then i noticed yesterday, that the front ones no longer come on at all, except when using the indicators. The right park lights flash with (at the same time) the right indicator (and visa versa) instead of alternating on and off with the indicator. They do not come on at all when the headlights are one either (low beam and high beam headlights are ok). I've checked all fuses and bulbs, but i'm not sure what else to look for.
