Head light lense removal.
« on: 25 June 2018, 10:29 PM »
Hey guys, I need to remove my head light lenses but I’m stuck on how to do it.
I’ve had a look and the lense is held on with little clips, does the whole unit screw out out then remove the lense?

Thanks,
Neil.

Hi Neil,

Those clips swivel around, although beware of the plastic tips as they are brittle and quite often disintegrate.

It might be best to remove the entire light assembly, although it can be done in situ if you remove the panel below.
