Hey Guys,
Anyone know how to change the bulb on the small light on the underside of the arm which extends the sideview mirrors? What bulb? Which source?
Thanks in advance; this forum is the best!

I am assuming you are referring to the amber turn signal light.

I will look at mine in the morning and let you know if I find an answer.

Cajun, I just looked at mine, and I am guessing a small screwdriver and pry gently, but I am not going to try it until it becomes necessary.

I think it would be nice if you contacted Velvac, or whoever made your mirror and asked them.

After you do that and get yours fixed, post your findings for the rest of us.

Velvac has some excellent PDF files on their website. You can find their website by the link for Velvac under Components and Appliances Contacts at the bottom of the Alpine Tech Library page on ACA's website. This one shows how to R&R the turn signal lamp.

Hello John:

I have replaced my lights with LED. I removed them by prying them out with a standard screw driver on one end and they had used bullet connectors on my coach. One was power the other is the ground. The new ones just pushed in. They are a sealed light and available at most truck stops and truck parts houses.
