Headlight bulb change help
Written by alfr4d on 5/24/2011 at 02:09 am

It locks with a handle, comparable with the one on car headlights. remove the
plastic under the light (three screws). Remove the light plug with notion on its
position, remove the rubber cap, look with a mirror for where the clamp handle
is and loosen it careful without moving it out of place. Change the light
without ever ! touching the quartz glass in the same way it went out. Absolutely
no dirt or dust must go into the housing with the lens and mirror (very
important) so work clean and clean dirt off first. Put the handle back, if
unsure how: pull the spring back over and push the lever lightly down and to
below just until it is able to move up front a little and next a bit up. Now it
is tight and you can place the rubber back. At the rubber should be marked the
up or down position. Put the plug back on and test light and hight. It helps if
the old position is marked at the garage wall. Alfred

I pulled off the rubber boot thing and the bulb doesn't want to come out. Do I twist it? Feels stuck like it might break. Thanks in advance.

    Dean, Go look in the service manual either yours or the on line one. Then look in the photos section for ones that show the wire retaining clip and how to undo it. Somewhere there was a writeup on changing the heahlight bulb. Fred

      For a great write-up, including details about the retainer clip - go to the Files section of the forum and look for "PC800 Headlight Bulb Removal.doc". -Tim Dearborn Blue Island, IL, USA '96 Pacific Coast, "Tuppie",
