    Changing Parking Light Bulb

    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?  Iíve 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.

    Hi,

    I am new to this forum but I noticed it is a long search on finding how to replace that little bulb. I had to figure out that, after unscrew the 4 ones at the front cover, the transparent will not come off. So I made a little video on how to change the parking light. It is actually very simple. Just 4 screws out, take the ring off and peal the rubber holder out. Don't drop your bulb inside the headlight unit, or go fishing inside...

    We don't see the things as they are, we see them as we are.
