Changing stop light bulb


The lens housing for the stop light bulb on a 07 is about 4 inches. The situation is that NO screws are holding the housing/lens onto the MH. I think that prying out the lens MIGHT gain access to the bulb but have no desire to break the lens. Am I overlooking something simple or is it another bean counter brainstorm?

My screws thru the lenses were steel and rusted. It took me a while to get them out, heads stripped etc. I pulled all of mine out and the body of the lights from the rig and replaced all the screws with stainless.

It's a Lexington, '07 I believe. About 4 inches across with NO screws securing it to the body. That's why I ask. Would rather not break a lens as I don't have spares.

doesn't it just snap on and off ? I am not sure I don't have your model.

As I stated before a few pics would be nice maybe we can help further unless someone has your model and year that knows.

If I remember right, you have to squeeze the lens.
There are tabs that the lens slip into.
I can't remember if they are on the side or top and bottom.
Do a little exploration...gently.
I had to replace a marker light. I'm sure it's the same system.

Good luck and report back with your findings.

The brake lights (and the rest) are a single piece, just pull out of the rubber, disconnect and buy at most auto
stores, approx $5.00 and plug in then pull rubber around.
