Changing Parking Light Bulb
« on: November 16, 2019, 09:12:02 PM »
Just doing a bit of pre-emtive investigation here, I have a 2015 XRX with a beak fitted, now to change the parking light bulb it looks like the beak needs to be removed, so to remove it do I need to remove all 6 bolts, 2 top, 2 side and 2 underneath and then slide the whole thing forward or is it just remove the 4 underneath so it drops down enough?  Ive seen a couple of vids online but they are older models which are different?

Thanks for any advice.

I've got to do the same job myself, on an XRx that I fitted a beak to. You need to remove the entire cockpit assembly, not just the beak (that doesn't help, I tried it). Watch the first part of this, it'll show you exactly what to do:

I've just changed the pilot/parking light for a Led. 4 screws. 5 minute job.
Or am I missing something?

I don't think you're missing anything bud, its a doddle 99% of the time apparently, but sometimes the bulb slips and falls into the headlight body which causes untold aggro and blue air
It's a long way to the shop if you want a sausage roll

You haven't got a beak.
