front turn signal removal

Any suggestions out here on how to remove the front turn signal housing on the 67 rs. These are (for no better word) circular open type clips that slide on to hold it in place but how do they come off without damaging the fixture? Thanks guys.

Re: front turn signal removal

There is a horse shoe type clamp on the back side of the housing. Just remove the two nuts on the back and the housing should come out the front. I am not aware of any clips.

Re: front turn signal removal

There are 2 posts that go through the bracket and the clips are a complete circle with tines that slide over the posts that hold it in place similar to a horseshoe clip. I don't remember any nuts on the back, but I'll look some more. I'm replacing the front valance and had put new lights in awhile ago.

Re: front turn signal removal

We need a picture of this. It sounds like aftermarket.

Re: front turn signal removal

Here's two pictures of the back of the housing. Hope you can see the round clips I'm talking about, my thought is to tap the posts forward but I don't want to damage the housing.

Sorry I can't see the pics. If you load your pics to a site like PhotoBucket you will be able to add them to your post.

Re: front turn signal removal

those are like the retainers that used to hold brake drum on the studs , they should have been installed last but the only way i know of to get them off is pretty much by cutting them so that you can open them up by twisting, i would be very careful though those potmetal post can break, after you remove them you can use some self threading trim nuts to secure them

Re: front turn signal removal

That's all that came with them, I thought it was odd to not have nuts but the post wasn't threaded so I used them and they don't move. Never thought of self threading nuts. Thanks for the help.

Re: front turn signal removal

They are supposed to be self-cutting speed nuts. 7/16ths or 3/8ths.

Re: front turn signal removal

I think they call those push on nut. If your lucky you may be able to get a small screw driver in one of the cracks and tap it counter clock wise to get it off.
This is what we get from the overseas parts manufactures.
