MAINTENANCE
Lights
Poor lighting can result in reduced visibility when driving. Headlight
and taillight lenses become dirty during normal operation. Clean lights
frequently and replace burned out lamps promptly. Always make sure
lights are adjusted properly for best visibility.

Headlight Lamp Replacement

When servicing a halogen lamp, don't touch the lamp with bare fingers.
Oil from your skin leaves a residue, causing a hot spot that will shorten
the life of the lamp.
1. Remove the two screws on the lower front corners of the headlight
pod.
2. Remove the screw from the rear of the pod.
3. Lift the pod slightly while depressing the tabs at the rear of the pod.
4. Lift the pod cover and disconnect the speedometer harnesses from
the speedometer.
CAUTION! Hot components can cause burns to skin. Allow lamps to cool
before servicing.
5. Unplug the headlamp from the wiring harness. Be sure to pull on the
connector, not on the wiring.
6. Turn the lamp counter-clockwise to remove it.
7. Apply dielectric grease to the socket and install the new lamp. Make
sure the tab on the lamp locates properly in the housing.
8. Reassemble the pod.
