EXTERIOR LIGHT BULB SERVICE
Halogen lamps contain pressurized gas. A bulb can
explode if you:
Touch or move it when hot
Drop the bulb
Scratch the bulb
Wear eye and hand protection.
To prevent a possible electrical short circuit,
switch off light prior to replacing a bulb.
1. Push the tab down at the top end of the cover and
2. Disconnect the electrical connector.
3. Release the spring clamps holding the bulb in place,
and pull out the bulb. Replace the bulb and reverse the
removal procedure exactly.
Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil
contamination will severely shorten bulb life. If the
bulb comes in contact with an oily surface, clean the
bulb with rubbing alcohol.
