    My 2004 rally light blew a bulb after being hit by a deer. I am not sure how to replace the three butterfly spring clips hold the lens in the housing?
    A pic would be helpful but I haven't found one yet.

    Take off your other light and look. It’s hard to explain.

    Dah, I realized that I could do that without the springs popping out.
    Thanks.

    Have you tried realm.com. Sometimes that helps. I wish I could help but I haven't seen one apart.

    Don't quite get real.com(argus). I would have to take mine apart again which anyone can do.
