2002 Southwind Headlight Bulb Change

Found an old thread about changing the headlight bulb in a Southwind, but the thread was too old to post an update. The weather wasn't the best for crawling around, but with the hood open it looks like there is access from the top with long arms, or access from below in the back with the front wheels turned.

Weather permitting, that's the main project for this weekend. Any advice?

It should be easy enough from the bottom. You should only have to rotate the wiring harness socket counter clockwise and pull out the socket and bulb. Some bulbs require that you not install them with any grease from your fingers. If you have touched the bulb, you can wipe off the grease with some alcohol and paper towel. Use the towel between the bulb and your fingers to keep the bulb grease free.

Easy access from in front of the turned front wheel, and once I watched a video on You Tube about that darned little clip that is a true pain to remove, all went well. Back to a full complement of lights!
