Front Headlights

we are trying to replace the whole front head lights assembly. They appears to be glued in. Is this correct? how do you remove the head lights assembly?

This is the direction I received from OMC.

You need to cut away old sealant with a sharp knife. This is hard work, go slow and be careful.

The new headlight will not fit perfectly. Use a hot glue gun to tack it in place once your fit up is squared and straight.

Clean and prep the Fiberglas with Sikka cleaner. Wait 15 minutes and prime the Fiberglas with Sikka primer. Wait 15 minutes, no longer than 8 hours to install sealant. Mask area around headlight and Fiberglas with 2” masking tape to keep the sealant install clean and sharp. Install the Sikka Flex 221 black urethane and smooth it out around the headlight. Remove the tape while sealant is still wet. Spray the sealant with water to help it set up. Sealant should be dry after 24 hours.

Good luck!!

Tracy, you'll need to aim your lights. If your lights are like mine, there are 1-2 small bubble levelers in each light. Move your coach to a place that's truly level and facing a wall. You'll quickly learn what to do.

Be thoughtful in connecting the headlights to the 12v. The new connector plugs probably won't be like the OEM's, so it's easy to get one light on high-beam and the other on low, or as in my case, the high- and low-beam reversed. By the way, my lights were made for a Lincoln Model XXXX which is why the connectors didn't match up. To the BOMK, most coaches use domestic auto head lights.

About the last thing I want to do is to the bus drive at night, having hit a tire carcass in daylight ($15 k in damage), but the hazy lenses just got too ugly for me to tolerate.
