The Ford Ranger is a compact truck that was produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1983 to 2010 and was designed for domestic and world markets, replacing the Ford Courier. Ford Rangers are one of the most popular vehicles in North America, especially for off-road enthusiasts. If you have a Ford Ranger and want to remove your headlights, this article will show you how to do so.

To remove a Ford Ranger headlights, follow these instructions.

How To Remove Ford Ranger HeadlightsFirst, switch your car’s ignition ON but do not start it. Make sure that all other electrical components such as windshield wipers and interior lights are OFF. These things may cause injury while removing headlight assembly from vehicle body so be careful when working under pressure!

Locate two bolts on either side of each headlamp unit which secures it into place at the front hood level (near hinges). Loosen those nuts using proper tools like ratchet set or wrench. Then gently pull out both fog lamp assemblies from their openings.

Now you need to remove the headlamp unit and its assembly by removing two screws on top of each fog lamp housing (near hinges). After that, carefully pull out both headlights and disconnect wiring harnesses before taking them off completely.

When it comes to installing new lights in place, just reverse all previous steps: connect wires together first, then slide the whole lamp into position using open space above where your old units were once placed (you may use a small cloth here for protection against any damage), mount these back onto car’s body with help of bolts/screws which secure these as well as fasten nuts evenly at both sides. Tighten everything properly so you don’t end up loosening soon after completing this job. You can even choose to test the lights before closing up hood for good, but make sure you do it with caution so as not to damage any electrical components in vehicle!

Now that your Ford Ranger is all set and equipped with brand new headlights, take care of its exterior by washing away dirt and dust using a sponge dipped in clean water mixed with mild car shampoo (do not use soap because it will harm paint over time). Rinse out thoroughly until there’s no foam left on surface or if needed – repeat process again once more. Let headlight covers dry naturally under sunlight before putting them back into storage compartment when done cleaning truck parts outside. Now get ready to drive at night without worrying about traffic signals stopping you each time you approach from behind!


To conclude, removing the headlights from a Ford Ranger is difficult but can be done with enough patience.

It also helps if you follow this guide exactly how we’ve written it which should help make sure nothing goes wrong! If there are any problems don’t hesitate to get into contact your mechanic to assist. Good luck!
