Tighten LED marker light

How do I tighten down this light. Itís on a 2018 Sport 22fb. Iíve pushed, pinched, pulled, twisted, and cannot see how to easily remove the amber lens cover. Iím assuming underneath Iíll find a screw that needs tightening. Any tips?

I'm going to follow this one... I have the same issue.
On one I have a broken clip as well, but I don't know if I have to replace the whole light or not. I can't find the clip alone.

The light assembly is held onto the chrome base by a pair of spring clips. One at the narrow end, one at the wide end. Carefully pry the light off the base from those spots, then carefully pull it out of the way, so you can tighten the screw. Again, be careful, since the wires are going to be stuck through the hole in the body with Vulkem/Adseal.

Thanks Overlander. So does this picture show the 2 black clips youíre referring to? This looks to me like the current light fixture Iíve got. Gonna need a pretty thin blade to get in there, but if this is the way it clips on, I can see what to do.

The lens clips are real, REAL, tight. Keep working at it and it'll pop off. Chances are good there isn't much wire to play with when it does. But yes, that's how you'd get it off and tighten down the base.

Very nice job guys, very nice. It would have been a difficult job to figure this one out without breaking something.

When I get up to the trailer in a couple days, iím going to try and push some dental floss down in between the base and the lens, and then pull back to push the spring clamp thing. Iíll see if that works without scratching or breaking anything.

So I was able to separate the lens from the base by working in a credit card and then running it around the perimeter while slowly lifting up. Took a while but popped out after I had both ends sufficiently lifted. The clips were not what I expected. I was expecting a plastic clip that pushed back and released, but they were the metal clips that spring against the slot edges, so they do fit snugly and can be tough to wiggle out. Found that the screw hole was stripped and unable to be tightened down so I cut a sliver off of my Mr Grip stripped screw hole repair kit ($1.99 at Ace Hardware) and pushed it in and put the screw in tight as could be. Repair complete, the light is now snugged up to the skin. Be forewarned, there ain’t a whole lot of electric wire to play with when the light fixture lifts up. Just enough to turn the lens and tighten the screws. Not too bad. Took about 15 mins.
