How to Access fluoresence light to check bulb.


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks- a quick question please.

The internal standard sitting area fluoresence light in my motorhome is flashing intermittently- (on, off, half on) when I turn it on.

Camper is a 2004 Compass Castaway. The light is the usual circular type but I am not sure if I should just 'pull' it down out of the holder with say a screwdriver, or does it twist off. I don't want to try forcing it off until I know what is the correct method to view the bulb. Any info please?

Hi there,


i have the same vehicle and the lights in question have 3 plastic lugs spaced evenly

around the edge.




What you need to do is to firmly press the sides and you will notice it gives a little

and you will see the lugs, carefully unclip each one and the lens comes off giving

you access to the bulb.


If you are interested i now have 4 spare bulbs because i have just converted mine

to LED.


PM me if you are inerested .

Glad to be of assistance

Hi Wooie,

I got access to the light bas per your instructions, and tinkered around with the bulb. It is back on now at present, but I think I will need to revisit it again in the near future. Tks for your help again.
