Gauge lights may also fail to alert you if there are any issues.

If your Ford F-250 light bulbs are not functioning properly, there’s a huge selection of bulbs including LED and OE analog bulbs. These are manufactured by the most reliable brands which include Putco, Sylvania, and Lumen. In addition, they offer excellent light and give your Ford F-250 an impeccable exterior styling.

The most time-consuming task while replacing your Ford F-250 bulb is finding the correct bulb size. This often calls for help if you’re trying to replace your headlamps with an HID or Xenon Headlight Kit or, if you’re trying to install some LEDs or SMDs in your interior light system.

Fortunately, the Ford F-250 headlight bulb replacement guide is here to help. It takes you through the process of replacing your headlight bulbs along with the right bulb sizes. It also helps with changing burnt out bulbs and installing LED light bulbs and HID headlight conversion kits. It saves you countless hours that you’d otherwise spend finding out what to do.

The information provided, however, is not guaranteed. It should be used at the Ford F-250 owner’s risk. Always confirm that your light bulbs are of the right voltage, size and wattage.

Aftermarket Light Bulbs: Upgrade Options

Most aftermarket headlight bulbs either don’t fit, have poor beam pattern, or lack the proper luminance. Other headlight issues include bulky designs and inefficient cooling. This compromises your visibility. The best kits fit perfectly, modern and compact design, function as they should, and offer the brightest light. The 2018 Supernova V.4 LED and SL1 LED headlight bulbs are examples of perfect headlights. They produce twice to thrice the amount of light produced by factory halogen bulbs. They also feature a focused beam pattern, are easy to install, and do not give warnings or flicker on your dash.

Figure 1. Remove bolts holding the assembly.

  • Remove the screws that hold the flexible flab using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • Remove the 3 bolts holding the assembly to the truck frame if working on a Ford F-150. In the F-250, there are 4 screws that should be removed.
  • Remove the housing from the frame.

Figure 2. Remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the headlight bulb behind the headlight assembly and unplug its wire.
  • Turn the bulb anticlockwise and pull it out.
  • Install the new bulb. Use latex gloves to avoid touching the bulb with bare fingers. Oils cause bulbs to burn out more rapidly.
  • Return the bulb housing into the headlight assembly.
  • Reconnect the wire.
  • Push the assembly back onto the frame.
  • Replace the 4 screws that secure the assembly into place.
  • Consult a professional if you’re replacing high intensity discharge bulbs as these normally have high voltage even when disconnected from the electric plug.
