piaa owners

Question for all of you that have piaa lights. I have a set of 525's that I need to replace the bulbs on. The instructions say to push in the release switch to get the fronts to come off. For the life of me I cannot find this switch. How do all of you get your covers off to replace the bulbs? Thanks in advance!

Re: piaa owners

My 540s have a screw on each side of the housing that release the bulb...

Re: piaa owners

My 520's have a screw on each side, then pull that ring off, then use a flat head screw driver and carefully pry the lenses from the cases.

Hope this helps

Re: piaa owners

Thanks for the replies. I don't see any screws though. I must have overlooked something. Guess I will look at it again tomorrow.
