Note: These instructions refer to the driver's side headlight. I assume the passenger side headlight is the same, but I have not verified that.

Remove the black plastic cover at the front of the hood compartment. It is secured with five velcro pads. The glue used to hold these pads on has probably worn out, but that doesn't seem to matter.

At the back of the headlight housing, there are two metal clips that need to be removed. Push towards the rear of the car as you pull up on them.

The headlight housing will now slide forward 4-6 inches.

Pull off the wiring connector at the back of the headlight bulb. There is a tab on top that may need to be pushed up. After you remove this connector, there is still one other wire that will remain attached.

There is a plastic ring around the base of the bulb that holds it in place. To remove it, twist it clockwise (when facing the car from the front) 1/3 of a turn. It should come off easily.

To remove the bulb, pull it straight back. You may have to wiggle it if it sticks. Be careful you don't bang your hand up when the bulb does come loose.

Installation of the new bulb is the reverse of the above steps. Be sure not to touch the glass of the bulb as the oils from your skin will ruin the bulb, possibly causing it to explode.

While the headlight housing is out, you should be able to figure out how to change the turn signal bulb. The car I worked on had a damaged turn signal housing, and I can not tell you much more than that.

There is no stand alone flasher relay in the 94' and up Lincoln Continental. The turn signals and emergency flasher function is controlled by the "Multifunction Light Control Module" part # 13c788. It is located under the dash to the left of the steering column. Cost to replace is around $600+ at the dealer or about $50 at a junk yard.

This is normally located under your dash somewhere. I always find it in a different location. I normally just tun on the flashers/ turn signals if they work and listen and feel to find it. It should be a small box that has a wire connecter on it. I know that's a very vague description but, I just don't know where it would be exactly on a Lincoln as I have never had to replace one on a Lincoln. Hope this helps you get started in the right direction.
