JAW's BF Falcon: Headlight Globe

How hard can changing a lightbulb be?

I've changed the Falcon headlight bulbs a few times and I always forget how to do it. But now it's documented, future JAW can thank me.

You can change the one on the air filter box side, take the box lid off. The battery side will need the battery removed. Don't try to remove the globe or the rubber boot, start with the plug. You won't feel them, but there are little clips on the side that you squeeze in and then pull the plug off.

Now you can remove the rubber boot, there is a clip underneath. Push it in and down, the globe can now be removed.

Plug off.

Install the new bulb, be careful not to touch it, it will create a hotspot and fail early. The clip can now go back on, the rubber boot and the plug. Job done!
