    N+B Arto 69 (2003) internal light removal



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    On our Arto one of the lights over the kitchen has had progressively failing problem of the switch, which now has no positive action and which is 'floppy' and does not turn on the light.

    My question is how to extract the whole unit? There are no screws on the plate. Does it 'spring' out on clips? - I am relucant to prise too hard unless I know this is the correct method.

    Does one have to empty the cupboard above and remove the 'floor' of that cupboard to gain access?

    The plastic wrap around trim should pop off, use a thin screwdriver to do this.

    Forgot to add, trim removal will reveal securing screws.

    Slow down - I only posted the problem 48 hours ago.

    Now the feedback



    "I have solved the removal problem for the light.


    The original retention design was as I surmised by spring clips.



    However, somebody had added screws laterally( different lengths) thus my difficulty in prising the unit out.


    Now I can tackle the switch problem."


    The 'trim' is not separate on this unit, it is integral with the body of the light, which together houses the spring clips for retention. The screws seem to have been a previous owners 'mod'. Pity he put them at right-angles to the line of the spring clips and not in-line as a back-up.

    48 hours is a long time in motorhome forum terms

    Slightly different setup to mine (2005), does your model have a rear window above garage?

    More importantly, did you resolve the issue?

    Cheers.

    As for 48 hours, I am retired - so do not pressurise me.

    I do not understand what our window arrangements over the garage - one rear, one port, one starboard - have to do with a kitchen light.

    Resolved extraction of unit, not switch - give me 48 days.

    Reason I asked re; rear window, the newer models (no rear window) had other changes, with regards to fixtures and fittings.

    As before, hope you resolve issue.
