Decided to fit my new headlight. Plan was to put a rubber grommet into the back o the housing to prevent the rough metal edge from cutting the wires. Remove screw cap joiners and use mini torch to solder the wires and cover in heat shrink. Plug in head lamp, use dermal to cut notches for locating tabs. Take battery off charger, test head light and go for a spin.
|Original blown headlight with massive crack in it. Also not 'E' marked so wouldn't have passed RWC.|
Had to drill out hole in housing to ½" take the grommet, and gave it a little polish while it was out.
|Original wiring, under the balk tape on both the red wires is a stripped section of bare wire. Also you can see the sharp hole the wires were coming through.|
|My Rewire job.|
|Comparison of the lights from the back. not the three tabs on the back of the new headlamp.|
|New Semi Sealed Head Lamp Installed. No to keen on the flat edge that runs around the outside. But couldn't find a nice curved lens like the original with an 'E' mark.|
Packed my shit up in disgust and called it a night!
Still don't understand if there is an electrical problem or the battery is just buggered?
So still no closer to getting a RWC!
