I need to change the passenger side headlight, is there an easy way to do it? I tried to get through the back side but couldn't get in there good enough to correctly put the new bulb back in. Does the whole assy come out?
What year X do you have? What motor? I've had both sides of my 2000 7.3 out and don't recall doing anything special. The drivers side (just out yesterday) was a little tight against the battery box, but still do able. Probably a difference in the year or motor, but if no one else has any ideas today, I'll take another look at mine tonight and re-fresh my memory.
There are two screws between the bumper and headlight. I can't remember where the other hardware-clips, etc are....but it should be evident once you'er there. (I know my Cobra has two blades that slide up and the headlight comes out.)
I used an extension on my 1/4 drive ratchet to get the screws out above the bumper.

I have a '00 V10 Limited as well... I was able to replace both headlights by reaching in directly from above. Tight fit, but nothing serious. If you have HUGE hands and arms, you might have some trouble.
