Over drive Dashboard light

Post by bohdan » Wed Oct 12, 2016 5:02 pm

Greetings Gents,

Is it possible to replace the Over drive bulb from reaching behind the dash instead of removing the entire dash? I think somebody did this, but coudlnt' find. Mighty obliged.

On a GL1500, yes, it is entirely possible. Done it myself.

if you are talking about a 1500, Yes, just did it. Make sure you pull on the rubber grommet and not the wires. It will be hard to pull out, once you get it out lubricate the grommet and it will slide right back in place.

Make sure when you lubricate the grommet, you use silicone, not oil, or a petroleum-based grease, which can degrade the rubber.
