Both high beams are out. Owners manual says to remove radiator grill then headlight assemblies. A few plastic things to unclick.

Plastic things often break rather than unclick in the winter.

Seems like there should be easier way. I cannot my hand behind the headlight assembly.

Other clever ideas?

I do not have a Ford truck, but I saw this on youtube... afaik it applies to your year of truck. It sounds bad to have to remove the radiator grill, but looks like it is not a bad job to do.

The early Ford Ranger had a one piece grille....it all had to come out to change one sealed beam.

Some Cadillacs need the whole bumper cover removed to do a headlight or driving light bulb.

About a month ago, a co-worker took his Implala (I think. He never drives it to work so I'm only sure that it's a GM product....) to the dealer to change a blown-out headlight. He told me they had to take off a few front pieces to get to it and he got hit with over $100 in labor.

Man they really made that a pain in the [censored]. On my 05 you can change them in about a minute with no tools at all.

I guess it pays to get a new vehicle with LED lights.

It is a very simple job to remove the grill--four screws and press on the clips, then remove the headlight assembly. Check YouTube...plenty of videos. No way to change them without removing the grill, the screws that hold the headlights are not accessible otherwise.

Seems odd for two high beams to be out at the same time, are you sure it's the bulbs?

Such a lame conspiracy theory. Dealers don't design cars. OEMs make pennies on bulbs. There's no reason for the customer to go to a dealer or use an OEM bulb, anyway. stooges

My neighbor had his LEDs go out and it cost over $900.00 per side to replace as his is a light assy. not a bulb.

They did not go out at same time. But I did not get around to fixing the first one that went out and now both are out. Procrastination.
