1963 Skylark quarter panel courtesy lamps

Post by Bill on Mon Jul 13, 2015 4:18 am

Does anyone know what the trick is to getting the lenses off of the courtesy lamps? I tried to turn them but didn't want to put too much pressure on them until I knew how they are supposed to come off. Thanks in advance.

Bill: 1st off I think what your referring to is called sail panel lights. The lenses just snap in and held in place by like 3 lil tabs. If you grab the lens with your fingers it should just pop off, sometimes I've had to use like a screwdriver or butterknife to get them off. Be carefull when you do this cause they maybe very brittle (most old ones are). Good luck.

I was stumped at first and had to ask too Bill! Must be our age lol -- anyways it's cake and you shouldn't have any issues unless the lenses are really old and brittle -- as Keith indicated just take your time. I had best luck using a small screwdriver to get under the lense and lift it away from the sail panel, then just work it out.
