Removing rear light cluster lens



  • Anyone know how to do it, without breaking anything? :)

    Cheers!



  • **The cluster itself? Unfasten the three screws holding the plastic surround in place, then get your fingers in behind the indicator and hoi it out.

    Taking the cluster apart I'm a little vague with, though I'd be willing to bet you'd have to follow normal procedure of heating the clips up with a hairdryer until they're flexible enough to wedge free.**



  • Yeah, I mean the actual lens itself, not the whole cluster.

    I can see it has 2 clips at the top and 3 at the bottom, but even after prising a couple out, it doesn't look like it wants to budge at all!!

    **Okay, disregard the first bit then :lol:

    Most plastic lens covers of this type are just held in place with a number of clips. I haven't looked at mine, but if you say it's five, five it is (though my experience with MX-3s is that there's always one more fixing you never noticed before :lol: ). Normal procedure for removal is to get them really warm and pliable with a hairdryer and prise them free - the heat prevents the plastic from behaving in a brittle fashion and snapping.

    Beyond that, it's something I've not yet done so I can't assist further.**
