MrR1200RT Posted April 1, 2007 Share Posted April 1, 2007 My left bulb burned out at 17,800 miles so I replaced it with a PIAA light. I decided to replace the top light and right light bulb also with PIAA. Left and Top no problem the right was really difficult to reach and maneuver. Finally got the light bulb removed and started to pull the bulb from the receptacle; then the unbelievable happened the plastic housing around socket that secured the bulbs spade connection started cracking apart as I pulled the light bulb out. This made me really mad that this plastic was so thin and brittle. As I continue to tug and pull on the bulb it finally came out with a LOT of force. Way more than it should have. Then I noticed that I had sprung both the spade receptacles. Now I have two problems a broken plastic housing (loose spade receptacles) for the plug and sprung receptacles and now the replacement bulb will not go in. I hope this is a replaceable wire connection. This job should not have been this difficult; the other two bulbs came out will relatively little force and no broken plastic or sprung spade receptacle. Has any one else experienced this problem? Link to comment
