Changing the Light Bulb on a Grommet Style Trailer Light


how to change a grommet style light bulb, removing lens cover


Expert Reply:

First, you have to make sure that the bulb in the light is actually replaceable. Some are not and trying to remove the bulb will damage the mount it is attached to. If the light is like # 30-17-815 then you would rotate the grommet at the back and pull out the assembly.

If the bulb used is a wedge style and replaceable you should just have to pull it out. If it is a bayonet style (old school bulb) then you would have to push in and turn the bulb to remove it.

If access to the back of the light is not possible then you would likely have to gently pry of the lens cover either by hand or using a thin flat blade screwdriver. Then you would either pull out or push and twist the bulb as described above.
