The video above shows you to replace the headlight in your 2001 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon. Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Changing both headlight bulbs on your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon at the same time will allow both bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the new headlight bulb from appearing brighter than the bulb on the opposite side. In some Fords, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb (and vise versa). Some Fords have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights. These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. If your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon has this type of bulb, we do not recommend that you attempt to change it yourself.

When you change the headlight on your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon, it is important to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb.

This video shows how to replace the headlight bulbs on a Peugeot (full and dipped beam). It's demonstrated on a Peugeot 206, though the steps are pretty universal to Peugeot vehicles.

I should point out the importance of getting the bulbs in the correct way up (shown by the tab on the bulb facing upwards), and seated correctly, to ensure maximum visibility from the bulb. Amusingly, the last bulb in the video is the wrong way up (you can see the tab is pointing downwards)... no wonder it felt wrong when pulling that bracket shut!

Hope this helps demonstrate how to change your bulbs yourself.
