head light bulb replacement

this may be a stupid question... but its the very first time i'm working on my new bike.

my left bulb is out...

i've downloaded the workshop manual.. it says: "remove the four screws and remove the bulb cover from the bulb to be replaced"

i've removed two screws as shown in the image below.

i can't see how i can possibly reach the bottom right one.

wanted to double check also that i'm not removing the wrong ones as it says dont touch the pivot screws

i wish the manual had photos and not drawings i struggle to understand :/

thanks!

okay that was a stupid question :)

i got past this step and accessed the bulb retainer but couldn't see how to separate the bulb from the retainer

also i'd ordered H7 bulbs 55W as per the specs but the bulbs i received look totally different to the bulb in the bike.

The bulbs in the top pic are HID, looks like a PnP H7 . All the wires coming out of the back of the cap are not stock. If you have HID bulbs, that means you also have ballasts and a harness somewhere.

The bulb retainer is the two pronged silver wire clip. The black rubber part is the HID bulb base and does not separate from the glass bulb. The halogen H7 bulb in the bottom pic had a silver metal base.

Did you test the bulb function while out of the bike? Ballast for power output? Depending on the kit used, some parts are cheap and fail very easily.

If you would rather have a manual with photos instead if drawings, try the Haynes service manual. There was one for sale in the classifieds not long ago.

But here's a labeled drawing of the rear of the headlight housing.

head light bulb replacement

Thanks so much alloneUP. Now a couple of things make more sense! Bulb function doesn't work at all with engine running or ever. The right hand side works when I hit the high beam switch. It's not great you can hardly see its on in daylight.

ballast and other pics below

You can test the ballast with a multimeter. Keep the ballast hooked up to the harness, unplug the bulb, turn on bike power, and check for voltage at the ballast power output plug. The side that connects to the bulb.

That's a generic 35W HID ballast. You can find similar replacements super cheap on ebay, if you want to go that route. They all have standardized plugs, both input and output, so any brand should be interchangeable with what you have.
