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

What about them star shaped,assorted bolts, screws, and other devices used to fasten body parts on vehicles? Who has some of these tools other than GM,Ford,ect.....?

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
