Headlight bulbs

Postby claude perreault » Mon Jul 04, 2016 10:05 am



Does the How-to article describing the procedure to replace a headlight bulb on a GL1500 apply as well on a GL1800?
I am aware of the possibility to replace the low beam bulbs without dismanteling any part from under the dash and I used it myself a number of times. But, the high beam bulbs cannot be reached this way.

If you remove the left and right storage bins on the 1800 you can access the high beam bulbs.

You are very right, ManuTD. I just tried your trick and, after some dismantling of the bin (which is not that straitforward...), I succeeded replacing the right high beam bulb. The left one seems somewhat more of a challenge though. At least, this requires much less part removing than tearing out the front panel and the whole headlight assembly.

Thanks for the info, Manu.
