Question How do I change headlight on 1992 E/F-150?

Simple question -

I have a pass headlight out on mah 92 E-150 -- just wanna know can I change just the bulb in this type of truck or do I have to change the whole unit/assembly? Any sockets needed or just a screwdriver?

THNX -- appreciate it, doing alot of projects to-day including a convertible top on another vehicle and this info would help me alot.

I am not sure if your van has the sealed beam like this:

or the composite like this:

I think the composite would take a replaceable bulb that would insert from behind, whereas the sealed beam would require replacing the entire bulb.

Good luck.
