How to Troubleshoot Ford Puma Defective Headlight Bulbs

Driving your Ford Puma with defective headlights is reckless and dangerous. Not only is your road vision greatly reduced at night, but other drivers on the road may not be able to see your vehicle. There are two reasons for headlight malfunction: a broken fuse or a broken bulb. Replacing the broken component will solve the problem. The Puma can have any of the sealed beam headlights or composite headlights. Sealed beam headlights require replacement of the entire h11 led headlight bulb, where composite headlights require replacement of the bulb.


Turn off the Puma engine. Go to the front of the vehicle and remove the four headlight retaining screws with a Philips screwdriver.

Discard the headlight and remove its retainer. Disconnect and remove the headlight of the vehicle.

Place the new h11 headlight on the retainer and connect it to the electrical connector.

Reinstall the screws and retainers.

Tips and warnings

  • Never change a halogen bulb with only your bare hands. Always wear gloves or use some clean cloth to replace the bulb.
  • Automotive lighting aftermarket provides a huge selection of custom LED light bulbs for car drivers, each of them is designed and made for the particular car brand and models.
  • Due to the higher filament temperature of the halogen bulbs, the led bulbs emit a whiter light than other halogen bulbs.
