Headlight bulb removal

Replacing the Hi/lo bulbs on the crosstourer

How do you remove the electrical  plug off the bulb is it just a pull off or do I need to squeeze and pull.

Help......

I guess you mean the black connector plug, it just pulls off - but likely will be stuck.  Just keep wobbling it while pulling gently backwards it will come off after a while.  A dab of Honda dielectric grease (or Vaseline) in the holes when you put it back will keep it from sticking too much next time.

They are a tight fit, don't touch bulb glass with fingers or the oils and grease of your skin will shorten the lamp life.

e spring is a bit of a bugger to release and get back over once you have the new lamp in place.  Good Luck.
