It was surprisingly easy, all I needed was a screwdriver.

Sealed beam my a**!

Bulb still worked, but output was low-pathetic.

I hope you switched to synthetic for longer life between changes next time.

I was able to absolve myself through connector wiggling.
Sure, the Wally world lights are only $12, but the PNP ones are only $3, and they now have a 1 year no hassle warranty:rofl:
I figure no pitting = new bulb:e-shrug:

That happened to me once. How does water get into a sealed lamp like that?

Glue dot where the wires go through the back dries out?
I think there is a seam between the lens and reflector too.

That fluid level looks dangerously low!

Closest I could come to it. Sold out, unfortunately.

BTW, I really like the looks of their Butt Dyno - will have to get one after the V15 cam goes in.
