1997 Thor Residency Model 3480

I am new to this web site and would like some advise on how to change the low beam headlight. This model has both a high and low beam light. I only see the adjustment screws and do not see how to disconnect the housing bracket.

I also have an owner's manual for this unit if anyone needs a copy. Reply to:

I'd check access from behind. You should be able to get to the back of the lights either from underneath the RV or from inside the front 'hood.' Are the lights sealed beam or bulbs in a reflector? Bulbs in a reflector are almost always removed and installed from behind.

1997 Thor Residency Model 3480 - Headlight Replacement

The lights are sealed beams and access from underneath or from inside engine compartment is not feasible. Looked at this, this morning and maybe a small Philips screw driver may work. But body is so close to light holder that screws and not accessible. Possible body cracking!
