    Headlight renewal.

    This is a nice easy job to do, so here’s how Ah did it;)

    The headlight…

    [​IMG]

    Firstly Ah removed the side light and indicator lenses….

    Undid the screws holding the bases on and pulled them through a bit…

    Next Ah removed the two screws holding the cover on and moved it out of the way…

    To remove the headlight, Ah took out the screw on the bottom right (4 – 5 o’clock) and DIDN’T touch the ones at 9 and 12 o’clock as these are the adjuster screws. If ye look at the rim ye should see a couple of ‘hooked’ slots, these are what hooks onto the adjuster screws….

    Then it’s just a case of popping the headlight out and disconnecting the wiring from the bulb….

    Once out, it was just a case of removing the chrome ring / rim….

    [​IMG]

    (For some strange reason, this one didn’t have a rubber boot around the bulb or clips to hold the ring / rim onto the headlight … so this is just a wee photie to show what it should’ve looked like…)

    Anyways, once Ah replaced the headlight it was just a case of sticking the rim back on and sticking on some clips Ah found….

    Hooked the unit back on to the adjusters and stuck in the wee screw……

    [​IMG]

    Loosely fitted the trim and stuck the side light and indicator back on ( might be an idea to check the earth strip and screw in the lamps to make sure they are clean at this point ;) )….

    A quick test to see if everything was working…

    And that’s it, job done ;) :D
