Help Changing Headlight Bulb..

19532.1

...But the l(Yamaha) lite bar is in the way of the 2 lower screws on the bucket.

'14 1300 Tourer.

How do I loosen/ remove lite bar to get to the screws?

I have an Allen wrench, just not enough room to finagle it on the bucket.

I'm not mechanically inclined to start with.

Is there a special tool that is made for lower screws?

Lost the hi-beam last week, so I rode with the low beam & the driving lights. Now the lo beam is also out.

I'm supposed to ride with the guys tomorrow PM. I'm not comfortable with NO headlight at al.

Thanks,

Rick

I have an offset ratcheting screwdriver that works very good. It's not this exact one but close to it. Any hardware store or autoparts store will have one. It's a life saver in tight areas.



Found the one I have.
