Cool

Calsonwa,

How did you get the tower light off, and how did you rewire the new light in? I would like to make the same change, but I can't get the light off. The socket that holds the bulb seems to be connected to a wire coming from the tower, and I can't get the socket out. I can't get the plastic piece that holds the socket out without ripping out these wires, it seems. And I can't get to the wires to loosen or cut them because there's a plastic piece protecting them. I've figured out how to remove everything else on the tower:






Any ideas?

I had some slack in the 2 wires going to the navigation light. Enough to be able to pull it out and re-wire the new light.

Can you try to feed some up from where the wires meet the hull? To give yourself some slack.
