Taillight lense question
« on: January 31, 2018, 11:53:30 AM »

Can someone enlighten me the correct way to change out the taillight bulbs on a CSX 4000 series?  These are the stock rectangular one's.  I can reach underneath the fender and see the bulb but there must be a correct way to better access these.
Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for the lead, I've decided I'll have to develop some monkey arms and reach up underneath the fender and undo the two nuts to release the taillight assembly.

Yes the two 5/16" nuts will let it out of there. If the rocks are tossing up off the tires and breaking the bulbs there are covers for them that are polished on the inside to double as a reflector.

Received the tail lamp bulb covers from Nick at Acton Cobra and they are indeed the solution to having exposed bulbs. Plus the inside of the protective housing acts as a reflector that brightens the brake lights. Very satisfied, thank you Nick.

If you are looking for even more visibility/safety from the oh so tall next to a Cobra vehicles with inattentive drivers you might want to consider LED 1157 bulbs from someone like Moss. I put them in mine and noticed a huge difference. If you do all corners you'll also need an electronic flasher.
