Map light assembly questions....

Help, plwase… I have a bad lamp socket ( map light ) in the overhead console of my 99 XLT ( with sun rood ).

I am trying to replace the lamp assembly. Several questions:
(1) Has anyone done this before?
(2) Anyone have a clue as to the part number?

I have tried Torrie at Ford Parts Network with no luck so far’ he has sent me the wrong part twice.


HELP

I think so, and maybe whatever housing they are attached to.

on my 95 there is a little circle tab once you turn that it should fall out with the bulb. is that what you are trying to replace?

No, removing the bulb is obvious, I am asking about the assembly.

Part 6 in the pic below is listed as "Interior Lamp" # 13776. This info is for a '95 tho, not sure if it is different.

Sounds like a trip to your local junk yard is in order. You can probably get the whole assembly for $35 or so.

Yes, very similar. What is the part to the top of the lense in the pic? I think it is different.

Robb, do the map light bulb holders have a part number on them? And can you post a pic of the buld holders?

Thanks......

to get it down it just snaps off

pull the rubber in front of it back (the trim that holds the carpet to the roof around the sun roof), then there is a bracket the back end will be loose and the fron just snaps in so pull down

but remove that trim around the winder first or you will break that piece and have to screw yours back up like I did.
