How to replace the headlamp bulbs in a 2000-2005 Mercury Sable

To replace headlight bulb:

  1. Make sure headlight switch is turned OFF.
  2. Remove the bolt at the end of the headlamp housing.
  3. Pull the two black tabs with the L shaped bracket toward the back and then up and pull out(Located at the back of the headlamp) to release the headlamp assembly from the vehicle and pull headlamp assembly forward.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb by pulling it.
  5. Remove the bulb socket retaining ring by rotating it counterclockwise.
  6. Remove the bulb from the lamp assembly by pulling straight back.

    Do not twist, as there are alignment slots built into the lamp assembly socket.

    It may take some effort to remove the lamp because it has a rubber o-ring type seal - try a bit of wiggling side-to-side

  7. Insert new bulb into headlight assembly - don't touch the glass - use gloves, paper towel, or similar

    Make sure that the flat surface of the bulb socket is facing upward, and is firmly seated

  8. Re-attach retainer ring by rotating clockwise
  9. Reconnect the electrical harness
  10. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

Replacing front parking lamp/turn signal/cornering lamp bulbs

  1. Remove headlight / lens assembly per above steps
  2. Rotate the bulb socket of the offending bulb counterclockwise and remove from the lamp assembly.
  3. Carefully pull bulb straight out of the socket and push in the new bulb
  4. Install the bulb socket into the headlight assembly by rotating it clockwise
  5. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down
NOTES
  • Do not touch the glass of the new halogen bulb - the oils in the skin will shorten the life-span of the new bulb, or possibly cause the bulb to explode when first turned on

    If the bulb is accidentally touched, it should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol before being used.

  • This procedure is well detailed, with illustrations, in the Owners Manual.

    See "Related Questions" below in case you can't find yours.

TURN SWITCH TO LAMP ON POSTION AND PRY OFF WITH SCREWDRIVER THEN PLACE KNOB BACK ON AT 180 DEGREES FROM WHERE YOU TOOK OFF AND THEN TURN TO OFF POSITION THEN TURN AND HOLD FOR THREE SECONDS AND IT WILL RELEASE LATCH IN CHIP AND SLIDES RIGHT OUT

This sounds more like a headlamp switch assembly suggestion than one for the actual headlamp assembly. Mine is a 1997, and it calls for turning the assembly retaining ring counterclockwise (when viewed from the back of the assembly), unplugging the wire by gently lifting the latch while pulling, and then removing the bulb.

The procedure for changing the headlamp and turn signal bulb on a 2000 Sable Wagon is to remove the headlamp assembly by first removing the small hex screw that holds the assembly to the body and then remove the two clips that look like half moons and push down through the body to engage the headlamp assembly. Simply pry both of these straight out and remove the entire assembly. Undo the electrical connections and twist off the retainer for either the headlight or turn signal bulb. Reverse the procedure for reassembly.

This procedure is detailed and illustrated in the Owners Manual - See "Related Questions" below for more

changing the headlight bulbs easy as 123that's easy there are two pins you pull out, they are located on top of the lights at the back of them.(when you open your hood look straight down at the light the two black little pieces pull out) then there's a screw its an 8mm i think loosen it and the light well pull out. then just twist the harness and there's the light

Three screws hold the headlight turn signal bezel onto the car. Remove those three screws and the turnsignal will pull out of the fender far enough to twist out the bulb socket.

On a 1999 C5 corvette manually put the flip up headlight in the up position, remove the plastic headlight trim around the headlight with three screws... put your bare arm under the raised headlight and remove the turn signal bulb with a careful twist.

Remove the headlight assembly above the faulty signal bulb. This will give you access to the signal bulb socket. To remove the headlight assembly, open the hood, stand in front of the headlight assembly, notice two black tabs sticking up behind the headlight assembly inside the radiator support. Pull up and wiggle the tabs to remove them, this will release the headlight assembly. You can now wiggle the headlight assembly out to gain access to the signal bulb socket for replacement.

1) open the hood. 2) Carefully remove the three screws holding the headlight assembly in place. In my case the screws were black. Be careful as they are screwed into plastic. 3) Carefully slide the headlight assembly out. At this point you can replace the headlight bulb, turn signal bulb, or the entire headlight assembly. To replace the headlight bulb turn the collar holding the bulb in counter clockwise. Pull the bulb out of the headlight assembly. Replace the bulb. Insert the bulb into the headlight assembly insert the collar and turn clockwise until it locks. 4) Carefully insert the headlight assembly back into place. 5) Replace the three screws removed in step 2 being carefull not to over tighten.

Open the hood, remove the two tabs that lock the headlight assembly in place, remove the headlight assembly, doing this will give you access to the signal light socket for bulb replacement.

Look back on responses to how to change headlight or turn signal assemblies on this page. Do the same thing, just twist out the bulb and twist in the new and reassembe. You must remove the turn signal assembly and the headlight assembly must be loosened. But it is very easy.

If you're removing the headlight assembly,you'll need to remove the turn signal light lenses,then the grill. From there you will see four bolts to each headlight assembly. It's pretty straight forward from there.

Well, you don't state the poblem, but if all your turn signals are not working and flashing as they should, replace the Turn Signal Flasher Relay.

User Avatar

First you have to take off the front bumper. Then there are three screws you will have to undo in order to take out the entire headlight housing to then get to the turn signal.
