This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and probably also the refreshed 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 model years of the Ford Edge SUV in changing a burnt out low beam or high beam light bulb located in the headlight housing.

Owners of other Ford and Lincoln vehicles such as the Escape, Expedition, EcoSport, Flex, Explorer, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Mustang, Taurus, Ranger, Transit Connect, F-150, Endura, C-Max, Kuga, Mondeo, MKZ, Navigator, Aviator, Nautilus and Continental may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement halogen light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # H11 and High Beam # 9005.

If you would like to have brighter headlights that will also last longer, install some H11 LED and 9005 LED bulbs.

No tools are required to replace any of the headlight bulbs on either the driver side or passenger side.

You might need a plastic pry bar tool or a small flat head screwdriver to release the retaining clip on the high beam's electrical connector.

The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the side of the vehicle with the burnt out light bulb.


Dust Cover Removed
Base of Old Bulb Exposed
Grasp Base of Old Bulb
The low beam bulb is located closer to the outer edge of the housing near the LED side marker light.

Reach in behind the housing and pull off the round black rubber dust cover.

Set the dust cap aside in a safe place.

Grasp the base of the old light bulb and rotate it 1/4 turn in the counterclockwise direction to release it from the housing.

1/4 Turn Counterclockwise
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Push In Release Tab
Pull the old light bulb straight out of the housing.

Push in the release tab on the electrical connector before pulling it straight off the base of the old light bulb.

Disconnect Power Plug
Connect New Light Bulb
Install New Light Bulb
The original OEM low beam bulb was a Philips H11.

Try to avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or anything greasy in the engine bay.

If you do get the new bulb dirty, wipe it off with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol.

Grease or dirt on the new bulb could cause a hot spot which will shorten the life of the bulb.

Push the power plug straight on to the base of a new number H11 light bulb until it clicks securely into place.

If you would like to have a brighter low beam light, install a compatible replacement H11 LED bulb.

Insert the new bulb into the opening in the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn in the clockwise direction to secure it into place.

Line Up Access Cover
Push On Rubber Cap
High Beam - Inner Edge
Line up the black rubber access cover and push it back into place.

The high beam light bulb is located closer to the inner edge of the assembly just above the front turn signal light bulb.

If you need to change the turn signal, you'll have to remove the headlight housing from the engine bay. I made a separate tutorial for this procedure since it is more involved.

High Beam Rubber Cover
Pull Off Dust Cap

Gently pull back on the retaining clip to release the electrical connector.

Use Plastic Pry Bar Tool
Old Bulb Detached
Attach New Light Bulb
If you have trouble pulling back the retaining clip, use a plastic pry bar tool or a small flathead screwdriver.

Try to use avoid using excessive force to prevent from damaging the electrical connector.

Don't touch the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or anything greasy or oily in the engine bay.

If you do get the new bulb dirty, wipe it off with a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol.

Push the electrical connector straight on to the base of a new number 9005 light bulb.

If you would like to have brighter high beams that will also last a lot longer, install some compatible replacement 9005 LED bulbs.

You should feel or hear the power plug "click" securely into place.

Empty Bulb Housing
Insert New Light Bulb
1/4 Turn Clockwise - Lock
Insert the new high beam bulb into the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn in the clockwise direction to secure it into place.

To test the new light bulbs, turn on the headlights and flash the high beams.

Be sure to record the bulb change in your vehicle's service records.
