Headlight on Thor Ace

I have a 2916 Thor ace 27-2 and I hit a rock and need to change a head light. I can not figure how to remove the old one. Hope someone can tell me what the trick of removing the old one. Thanks in advance.

Usually, they are held in place from the rear, with a clamp or bracket.

Replace of Headlight

If you dont have any LED headlights this would be the time to change them. You may need the housing if damaged and that is going to be tough to find but at the same time look into LED bulbs. Makes a huge difference. I have a 2022 Thor and the lights were crap. Typical manufacture and they failed to align them first off. Then the quality of the light was junk. Could hardly see at night let alone just plain dangerous. Switched to LED and align them myself which I should not need to do as it was brand new. Frustrating with dealerships now a days as I did it in a two hour session and it would of taken them six weeks........

Do you need to change the bulb or the lens? The bulb is a standard F-7 mount and a 9007 bulb in my coach and has a clip holding it in place. Lots of YouTube videos on the subject, admittedly not on your coach.
If it the lens, then usually the whole unit headlight must be replaced. Thor MC customer service can give you the parts number and the dealer can order it. usually. The <headlightsdepot.com> may carry a replacement assembly.
