Front cap lights

How do I replace the bulb in my front cap decorative lights (amber). I'm not sure how to remove the lens.

Can you post a picture? Most are, if you can not see the screws then they pop off.... careful not to chip the lens...

They are led. There are six of then. Three on each side of a V pattern. I'm not sure if they will pop off. I'm hesitant to try in this cold weather I'm afraid the plastic will be brittle.

Chuck I've only looked @ them briefly but do they have a small rubber mounting grommet around them?

BTW you'll have to replace the whole fixture or unit as shown.

DO NOT DO THE WIRE INSIDE THE CAP WHEN YOU CUT IT!

Chuck, I have confirmed that they are held in buy little rubber grommets.
Take a flat blade screw driver and pry out led assembly and rubber grommet.
Be careful not to chip fiberglass.

Thanks. That indeed the light I'M refering to. Is there a plug on the end of the wire? I'll probably need to order the light from the service dept.

It may be a connector or it may be spliced with a twist cap.
I've gotten these lights as pictured above from any HD trucking supply place such as www.midwestwheel.com
Www.grote.com

Thanks for the replies. I will probably remove it next spring when it warms up. My Sabre is going inside for the winter today. It was a great summer but as usual way too short. Can't wait to become a snowbird in a couple of years.
