Looks like my one indicator light is not working on my 83 Penta.
So I tried to remove the lens, but it seems like some smart ass used silicone sealer to fit the lens.
I am afraid to force anything as the plastic seems very brittle.
Any idea how to rectify this?
Parrafin has the capability to loosen the silicone. Soak a cloth in parrafin and rub it over the silicone. Thinking on how the mount of the light may look you will probably need to wrap the parrafin cloth around the tip of a screw driver It will take some time but the silicone will give way.
The more parafin on the cloth the better.
Will try. Thanks for the top tip!
Like parrafin, diesel should also do the trick, though not as quick as parrafin.
Be patient with this, it will take time to work.
Alternatively you can use a syringe. Buy a 10ml one from your pharmacy. This should enable you to apply more copious amounts of liquid to the problem.
An earbud may also help where it is difficult to reach with a cloth.
