Headlight Replacement

1564 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  fitch615
Has anyone tried to upgrade or replace the stock headlight bulbs in their 2005 mustangs? All the aftermarket ones I've bought have a longer plug than the stock ones, anyone else having this problem?

Thanks Mike C.

I have the Saleen HID kit, but that replaces the entire headlight assembly and requires the installation of ballasts which the stock system does not have. It is a major undertaking and not at all just like switching out a lamp. So if you are doing more than just a bulb replacement, be ready for some work.

I have to remove the front fascia and the inside fender covers to install them - looks like a good half-day and a six pack. Something to do on a rainy day here when the inlaws are trapped at home too and can baby sit the little one!
