Hello,

I have a SunL 150-26 scooter with only 50 miles on it. Yesterday the rear break light went out. The bulb looks like it is blown. How do I get to it to change it out? I took the seat out, but can't reach it that way. I took one lower quarter panel off as well as the small panel in the rear below the lights but still could not get to the bulb. I even took the clear cover off. With the clear cover off I can see the blinker bulbs but the break light is still under a red cover that looks to be screwed on from the other side.

How do I change the light bulb?

My daughter's bulb blew after a few miles from new. When I eventually got the lens off, it turned out to be the fitting having disintergrated into little pieces, so have a look for little bits of plastic. Fortunately it was within warrentee, so the dealer had the headache of fiting it!

If your dealer will fix it under warranty I would go that route. If not I suggest you figure out how to access the cover screws......OH yeah....as always in true Fox form.....a few pictures would help a lot. I would look at this guys picture and info. http://www.oregonvintage.com/Panels.pdf

The tail/break light is made to come out of the back. Unfortunately, there is no way to access the back. The back of the light is against the frame and the only way would be to pull the light fixture out. To do that though, I would have to pull the gas tank to get to the screws that hold it to the side panels. I tried to pull the red cover off and did get it off but broke out the screw on that held it on from the back. I've replaced the bulb and stuck the red cover back on with a little silicon. Hopefully it will hold.

on mine you have to remoe the rack and both side panels, then undo 2 bolts on the top, and 2 screws under the back to remove the light unit and get to the lamps.

I'll try taking off the top panels next time. I did take off the top rack but I wasn't sure how to take the side panels off. The light fixture is screwed directly to the side panels and I cannot reach the screws to remove them. Perhaps I will need someone to help me remove both side panels and the lights as one unit. I can't believe the manufacturer would make it so hard to change a light bulb. Since I pulled the red cover off and broke the two screws out and siliconed it back, I'll probable be able to just keep replacing the light bulb that way. seems an easier solution when compared to taking all of the rear end apart.

Thanks for the link to the pdf. That was an interesting read. I've been thinking of replacing the shocks on my wife's 150cc scooter. The rear shock ride is to hard.

I got a hold of the company I purchased this scoot from and they said I was the second person to call in the past week with the same issue on the sl150-26. Makes me think there was a bad batch of bulbs.

They company confirmed that the only way to change the light bulb is to take the rack off and the entire back end apart. The gentle man said that they have sent a note to the factory suggesting a change to make it more user friendly to change the brake light bulb.
