In 1987, Ford started making the headlights for the Mustang out of plastic. While these looked great when they were brand new, over time they’re prone to yellowing and fading, not only making them ugly to look at but, in some cases, making them a safety issue due to the decrease in light output. The ’99 through ’04 tended to be the worst. This large lens would yellow easily. Replacing these headlights in your car is not only going to freshen the look of your car, it’s also going to increase your visibility. There are many different options available for the ’99 through ’04, and, as we’re going to show you, they’re very simple to install.
These are going to be your factory style lights. For the ’99 through 2000 Mustang, they use this chrome surrounding the headlight. In 2001, they switched to this black surround giving it a smoked appearance making this a very popular replacement light. Over here, we have more custom headlights. This is a completely smoked light featuring either a clear corner or an amber corner. This is our projector light. This is available with or without halos and is available in the smoked finish as well as an ultra clear finish. All of these headlights are going to be direct replacements for your 1999 through 2004 Mustang. They’re going to accept your factory headlight bulb, your factory corner light bulb, have the factory style mounting tabs as well as factory angle adjusters.
We’re going to be installing a set of our dark smoke headlights on this 2003 Mustang GT. While not as bad as some of the ones we’ve come across in the past, you can still see yellowing and fading beginning in the center of these lights here, condensation on the sides from a crack right in the corner here, and the weatherstrip’s all dry rotted and cracked. It’s definitely time for some new headlights. This installation shouldn’t require any tools. To remove your headlight, you simply pull up on these two tabs to release it. Sometimes it can be a little tight and may require a screwdriver. Most times, you can get them out by hand. Now we can remove our headlight. I’m just going to pull it straight out. Disconnect the headlight bulb and you can twist and disconnect your corner light socket, put the old headlight aside.
You’ll need to reuse your factory headlight bulb unless you’re replacing it. To do that, you simply turn this counterclockwise, slide the sleeve off, and remove the bulb. Now you want to line up the tabs and install the original bulb in the new headlight housing, put the ring back on, turn it clockwise to tighten it. Now we’ll reinstall the two mounts. You might find they’re a little tighter than they were when you took them out. That’s perfectly normal. Press against the light, line it up, and push it down. Now you want to repeat the process on the other side.
It’s amazing how a simple headlight look complete changed the look of our Mustang. Our smoked lights fit just like the factory ones do but give the car a nice sinister look. Installation’s going to take you no more than about 15-20 minutes, so you’ll be back on the road in no time.
