I have not done one of those yet but from what I can see from the exploded view the grill needs to be removed and then the to bolts on top of the lamp assebly need to be removed.

The other thought is to remove/peel back the inner fender well and see if it accessable from there.

You have to remove the grill or the inner fender lining to change a light bulb? Thats crazy, 2 hours labor to change a stupid lamp. No wonder we can't work on our own cars anymore. Why would they engineer it like that? I see this a lot in my line of work as well. Its like they believe that once its together you'll never have to do any maintenance/repairs on the equipment. Sorry, just had to vent a little.

Yes and the worst part about it is them hidden screws you cant find. I use to hate when the service writer would call me up to the service lane to quickly install a bulb for free while the customer is standing there watching. You would think it is a simple task! I tell you, I can pull a tranny apart and an engine, throw all the parts in a pile, then put it all back together with no extra parts and it works good, but there has been times when I would spend an hour trying to figure out how to change a headlight! grin.gif And I look stupid trying to do it! smirk.gif

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
