    I really did try.... I wanted to do this small job on my own, no help, no guidance, just me with a little encouragement from the wife...FAILED
    I have an Ace Millano (2005) newly arrived saturday and had a great first weekend, one of my first jobs is replacing the halogens with LEDs, I have 4 spotlights that i believe are "Mini Spot Silver Sand10w halogen switched spotlight" I have managed to separate the internal glass housing from the plastic case by using a small screwdriver in the small gap but i am still unable to get to the actual bulb, i assume its something to do with the 3 small holes on the front of the unit ?

    Please please help me..

    Thanks in advance.

    Mark

    I think they're the same as mine, as you say pop off bezel and from memory I think you hold the back part and rotate the bezel, the three holes are the tanges that hold the two together. I fitted 22mm 6 LED cool white bulbs in mine.

    Yes same as been, I've checked and pop bezel off and then twist rear reflector, it's had to turn due to the rubber casket but if you look at the back of the bezel you can see the lugs and holes. The LED bulb I used was the rear pin type.
