How To: Change the Headlights in a 2013 to 2019 Ford Escape

How To: Change the Headlights in a 2013 to 2019 Ford Escape

These detailed instructions and video show a headlight bulb replacement on a 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Ford Escape models. Replacing a burned out or failing headlight bulb helps you see more clearly, follow traffic laws, and lets other drivers know of your vehicle’s presence on the road. If your Escape’s headlight bulbs are burned out or malfunctioning, you should replace both headlight bulbs together since they will likely fail at around the same time. Find the headlight bulbs, tail light bulbs, and other exterior light bulbs for your Ford Escape at O’Reilly Auto Parts.

Your Ford Escape’s headlights help you see in the direction your vehicle is headed, and can improve your visibility during poor weather or darkness. Functioning headlights are required by law, and changing a flickering, dim, or burned out headlight bulb can help you see better and drive safer while on the road. It’s recommended that you change both headlight bulbs on your 2013 to 2019 Ford Escape at the same time, even if only one has failed, since they are likely the same age and typically burn out around the same time. Failing headlight bulbs on your Ford Escape can make it difficult for other drivers to see your vehicle on the road, and may put you and others in danger. Use our step-by-step instructions to replace the headlight bulbs on your Ford Escape so you can see your best on the road.

Park on a level surface… and open the hood.
On the back side of the headlight assembly… behind the bulb you need to replace… carefully remove the rubber cap. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to disengage it… and remove it from the assembly.
To remove it from its socket, push the tab on the socket to slip the old bulb out.
When you handle your new bulb, be sure not to touch it with your bare fingers.
Finger oil or grease makes a hot spot on the glass that can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.
Push the new bulb into its socket until it snaps into the tab.
Insert the bulb carefully into the back of the assembly… and turn it clockwise to secure it.
Replace the rubber cap at the back of the assembly… making sure it’s seated properly all the way around. You should always replace headlight bulbs in pairs, so repeat these steps on the other side.
Turn your headlights on to make sure they’re working properly… and close the hood.

This is lame like all the other ones. The passenger side is "not like the driver side" there is no space and no slack in the wire. No one shows that and glasses over it. Only one video I found does, took them an hour. Called Ford, they claim you have to drop the bumper? I so far have spent over 45 minutes attempting the passenger side. Driver side took less then three like this video.

La Lee says:

ive got my guesses but hoping for advice. what could be the issue if ive replaced the bulb but i still have no light?

Ronnie Ross says:

“Repeat these steps on the other side…” haha. Yeah it’s not that easy on the passenger side and no one shows any tips.

John Henry says:

"take the passender side low beam out the same way you do the drivers side" Wrong big time. All kinds of stuff inthe way.
Very poor job on the video guys.

Margaret Johnson says:

how do you change out the day runner light bulb?

Margaret Johnson says:

this is just the high beam light!!

Juan Martinez says:

Why you didn’t changed the passenger side ?

Michael Peele says:

Passenger side is the problem if you have big hands
