Can anyone tell me how to replace a broken parking light lens on passenger side of 2007 Ranger Sport? I have a lens on order and was quoted $80 or $160 to put it in. Search on internet came up empty.

Sorry this hasn't been answered yet, I am a 98-99-00 person but I can tell you that is way too much! Do you own basic tools, fillips screwdriver, small metric socket set?

I've never done one that particular year but I wouldn't hesitate to go in to it. Even if it takes 2 hours you still gained!

I will look to see what’s involved later, I can probably do a step by step. I have a 2008

Remove the adjacent headlight. If I remember correct you pull up on 2 different clips that retain the headlight and it comes free. Unhook the lights from the back and the headlight should be out of the way.  You should be able to see the fasteners for the side marker.


I wasnt able to add this video to this page so I provided the link. If you click the link just skip down the page to the 3rd video.

First how about a picture so we can actually tell what is a Parking Light !

If you are talking about the side marker lights, pull the headlights, just two tabs behind the headlights, some of them come up hard, wiggle the tabs, mine are so tight I have to use a large screw driver to move them up.   No need to remove the wiring but you can and then move the headlight assembly out of the way.
There are screws, I think two holding the side markers in place... remove the screws, the bulb contour and pull the lens sassily out.

Very simple to do, just take you time.

If the side marker isn't what you were referring to please post a picture.

Take care !

Thanks to all who replied. I had a tech at the local ford garage about it. He showed me how to do it just like Eddie Money and Scrambler82 advised.  Not as bad as I imagined.  Great to have you all to help.

Its always harder to remove the headlights than replace any of the bulbs.

The time I ever did the BRP, I tried to stick my had between the housing back and the grille Mounting Section.   Didn't work so I read the book.

There are a lo to good people on this site, usually you just have to ask.

Glad it worked out.  Sure seems like a royal pain in the ass.  I've had mine out to paint them, and the headlights many times for HID, I still hate this.  Don't know what system would work better I guess, just seems like the should be a better way!
