Does anyone know what type/size/voltage bulb to replace the solder-in fog light indicator bulb in the headlight switch...or a brighter replacement? Mine is out.
:crying:Yes, you must solder the new LED leads in place.
Removal/installation is simple.......
You will need to clip the leads off where they turn 90 degrees up near the LED. This will leave long leads sticking out of the board with a small 90 degree section at the top. You will then solder the new LED leads to the bend of the long ones that are sticking up. This will be a solder joint at the 90 degree bend and the new LED will be in exactly the same position as the old one.:crying:
Mike, I'm running into it being not so simple or easy. While not a great person with a soldering gun, I think I might can do it here if I could clear a couple of "snags".
I bought the new LED one like shown in Trucknrods post.
I now have the switch module out and apart on my bench. It appears to me that one would need to cut the existing leads from current bulb and also remove that little &*%^$ black plastic tower that the current bulb mounts upon.
It's hard to get at the plastic prongs protruding on underside of module to squeeze them toward each other so as to pop that tower out of the module.
Once that could happen (somehow), I note that the new LED bulb and its leads are only about 1" long total. While the current leads are closer to 1 1/4". This makes it appear to me as once the old one was out, mounting the new LED into the top of that plastic tower and then bending the leads down to exit thru the module base.......they would come up a little short to get soldered.
I'm not cutting the current bulb leads till I understand from someone that has done this that there is a way to extract the black plastic tower and that the lead (length) is overcome somehow.:confused
