Disassembly Notes

Remove the back of light with a long 3mm hex key. These may need soaking with penetrating oil and a tap with a hammer and suitable punch. An 8mm dia. rod is ideal.

With the back disconnect this part from the rest of the light. Lay this part, fan upwards on the bench.

Remove the seven 3mm hex screws and separate the parts.

The control board will need to be removed from the housing as it's to difficult to work on otherwise, so remove all the connectors from the board. Noting the position of the two adjacent 2 pin connectors. The red glue will need to be carefully cut with a scalpel to allow most of the connectors to separate. Take care not to cut other wires or yourself doing this.

With the board out use a multimeter to check across the two diodes show in the image.

Remove the shorted on and replace with same type.

Recheck for shorts.

Reassembly Notes

Take care not to overtighten the screws, especially if corrosion was evident as this will have degraded the threads in the body.

Add anti-sieze compound or suitable grease to prevent further corrosion bearing in mind that this can aggravate over tightening.
