  • Next you can take off the retaining brackets. They are held back by a little notch that has to be lifted with a spudger. Repeat this step for the other side.

  • Once the brackets are released the light can easily be dissasembled. Begin by lifting the diffuser lens up as shown.

    • One can also have clear lenses here, the procedure is the same.

  • Note that the lens has a similar notch on the other side, underneath the Whelen logo. Carefully pull the lens out from underneath, don't force anything or it will break.

  • Now you can CAREFULLY take out the LED assembly. It's attached to a metal heat dissapating bracket. CAREFUL with the wiring. Note that the bracket is retained by the plastic housing. It might need some help before it gives way.

  • Once the Whelen logo tab is removed the light comes apart completley.

  • If desired, take out the six Philips screws to remove the LED circuit board from the bracket.

  • Note that the rear circuit board is held back by the same screws.

  • The LED board can easily be replaced by any other TIR6 board, any color (as far as I could check!)

  • Note that there is cooling paste between the LED board and the bracket. Make sure you replace it.

  • All done! No more steps required :)
