The headlight bulb socket's retaining ring came loose on the driver's side
of my wife's '94 Escort. This lead to the bulb socket backing out of the
headlight assembly's housing component--which in turn caused the hot
bulb to melt the feature that the retaining ring screws on to. So, now I am
faced with having to replace the entire headlight assembly instead of just
the bulb to correct a burned out headlight. I have already ordered a new
headlight assembly, which wasn't cheap by the way. At any rate, my
question is this. How much of a pain in the butt is it going to be to
this headlight assembly? It appears as though there are five screws on
the backside of the headlight assembly that are difficult to get to without
removing some other parts first. I certainly could be wrong about this.
Have any of you guys dealt with this same type of replacement before?
Thanks in advance!
