Default Focus rear light cluster removal

Hi,

I need to replace the stop/tail bulb in my 2004 focus hatchback but I can't get the light cluster off.

I've removed the obvious torx screw but the cluster is still firmly clipped in and I don't know which way to move it to unclip it and I don't want to break it forcing it the wrong way.

If anyone can post a picture of one removed or just write a couple of sentences explaining how it's done I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Martyn

what, hidden behind the panels inside ?

I did look at those but thought there be a little flap to open or something if there was anything inside... guess that would be too easy...

cheers

Undo the two screws that you can see, the light cluster then pulls off. Untwist the bulb holder, old bulb out, new bulb in. Or if you really don't have a clue take it to halfords and they'll do it for you for a couple of quid.

I always found them fairly easy, although the passenger side is slightly more awkward to remove the cover, as the battery is in the way.

On the rear light cluster of a 03 Focus hatch can someone just confirm whether there are 2 torx screws or just one. I've got to change a rear light bulb on mine and from what i recall on my other halfs Focus i could only see one torx screw when you lift the tailgate up and then there's a large plastic wing nut on the inside. Can anyone tell me where the second torx screw is?

I think it's one, but you would easily be able to see if there is another, plus the said nut underneath.

^^^^Cheers Martin. I looked at a couple of YouTube videos and they only showed 1 torx screw but that was on an American Focus so i wasn't sure if there were different variations.
