    Default Changing Headlight Bulb in 2006 Focus ZXW

    Hi All,

    I own a 2006 2.0 Focus ZXW SES. I have a passenger side headlight out.

    I purchased a new bulb according to the specs. It is hovering around -28 C right now so I'm trying to do this in the garage so I don't freeze. I went out today and took off the little circle plastic rubber off the back of the bulb. But now I'm at a standstill!

    What do I do now? Is there a metal pin that I have to push? I'm lost.

    Help?

    Thanks.

    I can see the back of the bulb with the wire's attached.

    I cannot seem to twist it or move it at all. That's where I'm stuck.

    Is there a locking mechanism that holds the bulb in place?

    I checked the manual.
    The instructions I have are:
    Remove the Rubber casing off the back
    Twist bulb counterclockwise
    pull backwards.

    When I try twisting counterclockwise it doesn't move.
    I can "strong arm" it straight back out but that pulls off the wire housing. There is a clip on the top also.

    Starting to get stumped here.
    Thank you for all your help in advance.
