asked by: Shanon E


Expert Reply:

If you have a newer model Wesbar Submersible Low Profile Trailer Tail Light, item # 403076, there are screws on the inside of the housing securing the clear capsule to the light housing. Removing these screws will allow you to remove the clear capsule cover and replace the bulbs. When the clear capsule is replaced an o-ring seals the bulb.

If you have an older Wesbar Submersible Low Profile Trailer Tail Light similar to item # 403076. The capsule in this light is replaceable with the Wesbar Replacement Tail Light Capsule, item # 763560.

The older Wesbar Replacement Tail Light Capsule is factory sealed to prevent water from getting to the bulb and socket. The bulb in the capsule cannot be replaced without compromising the watertight seal and the bulb would then not last nearly as long.

We do have a replacement capsule that will allow you to open it to replace the bulbs in the older style lights. The Wesbar Replacement Tail Light Capsule for Replaceable Bulbs, item # 403356, has an O-Ring type of seal and will open so you can replace the bulb in older style lights without replacing the whole capsule.
