Why does my fiesta keep blowing headlight bulbs?

There are a couple of reasons this could be happening. Firstly it could be that you are using cheap poor quality bulbs but assuming that you aren't it sounds like the voltage to the bulbs is to high indicating that there is a problem with the alternator's output voltage regulator. Put a test meter across the battery terminals when the engine is running (make sure you test leads and hands are clear of moving parts) and you should see a voltage of between 13 -14 volts if higher get your alternator checked out.ANS2:Are you using halogen bulbs? If so, you must be particularly careful to not touch the glass with your fingers. The oil on your skin will carbonize and the stain will cause the glass to get hot and blow out at that point. If you are frequently on rough roads, or if your car has a bad vibration, both can cause the bulb's life to be shortened.

How do you change a headlight in a 1994 300zx?

If you pop the hood, on the back of the headlight housing, there are some wires with a snap on or twist on connection. If you disconnect them as you pull them out the headlight is attached to the other end of the connection. Make sure not to touch your new bulbs with your hands because the glass on a headlight bulb is designed to run at a high temperature, but the oils on your hand get hotter than the temperature they are suppose to operate and will cause them to blow or bust. If you do accidentally touch one, just wash it off with alcohol.
