Under Dash Light Empty
PostSubject: Under Dash Light   Under Dash Light EmptyThu Aug 27, 2020 12:12 pm

Hi all.

Pulled the cover that holds the OBDII port and this lightbulb was just dangling there. Where does it go? It looks like it has a collar on the housing that should snap into a mount under the dash but I can't find it.

Thanks

Somebody cut that piece, you can see it in the picture. The right half of it is missing. That depression I was telling you about, where the light goes, is cut off.

Yep.

You could drill and notch a hole to fit the bulb socket I suppose. Or just get a replacement panel from junkyard next time a Riv pops up. I would do the latter.

Thank you, all. I already have a guy going to a boneyard tomorrow to get me one. Thank you! I wonder why it was hacked up...

If your Riv had assistive devices installed before it was sold to you, the panel may have had to be trimmed to fit them. Such as a brake assist or other controls that manipulate the pedals.

Thank you! I didn't ask what color the new panel is that he got from the junkyard. I'll spray it with this if I need it.

That lower panel the bulb pops into should be black plastic with no finish - don't get me wrong you could paint it but you can't even se it unless you are laying on the floor looking up.
