Open up the hood, On the Passenger side go in behind the fixture where the light is located. If you are doing the Drivers side it is Advisable to Remove the Battery First to gain Access to the head Light Assembly. On the Head Light Assembly to the Rear there is an access panel - held On and closed by a metal clip - Move the clip out of the Way and Take the Access Cover off the Headlight Assembly. You can now See the Bulg Assembly - There is a clip holding the bulb in the Socket you will need to Remove the Access clip and pull the bulb straight out - disconnect the Power Wires from the bulb To Install the new bulb, Remember never touch the New Bulb with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, Use a tissue or something else in that keeps your body oils off of the Bulb When you handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the housing, and replace the clips to secure the Bulb to the Socket assembly - Reconnect the Power wires to the bulb - Reconnect the Panel to the rear of the Light Assembly and Reattach the Metal Clip to attach the Panel cover to the assembly. you are done unless this is the drivers side - you will need to reinstall the battery in the battery Case to complete the Headlight changing Process.

How do you replace the rear turn lamp on a Ford E350?

The rear turn lamp on my 1999 Ford E350 is a multi-function bulb, number 3357; it functions as tail light, brake light, and turn lamp. Some functions may work after others burn out. If the turn lamp has failed, your turn signal will blink more rapidly than normal. The bulb is accessible by removing the rear tail light assembly with a torx-head (star-head) screwdriver; screws are accessible from the outside of the vehicle. Remove all four screws. Twist the middle lamp socket out of the assembly. Carefully pull the bulb from the socket and replace it with a new bulb. Twist the lamp socket back into the assembly, replace the assembly in the frame of the vehicle, and replace screws.
