Removing the spring clip by loosening the screw worked after all. Good deal.

For future reference if ya take a piece of dole rod about 18/24 inches long and put a notch in one end you can stand back and look at spring and take it off/ on . Flash lite helps also.

High beam bulb replacement...

Especially for high beam bulb replacement: For those of you who have gun cleaning rods: Take a pistol cleaning rod TIP that you slide your cleaning swab through and cut it off down to about a 1/8 inch making a small "u " shape. Attach this to your 6-8 inch rod and you can now catch the spring and move it where ever you need. Works great for especially for the high beams! Now all you need is a flash light and a LONG set of needle nose pliers from Harbor Freight to attach the power connector. Worth a try for those with big hands!
