    John Deere 425 Tail lights

    Hi

    I understand there is a Kit to keep the tail lights on the 425 from falling out. Two metal straps that bolt to the tail light housing and the fender. My dealer can't find a part number for the kit. My question is, does anyone know the part number for this kit?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Scott

    Scott: If my memory serves me, this is not a JD part. I've seen them on Ebay, I think. You might try there. Gary

    Cool

    Scott,

    The taillights were always loose on my 445 so I finally simply set them in with Gorrila Glue prior to putting it up for sale. That worked great ... as far as I know.

    I used some clear silicon on my 445 tails. Kept them in place for years.

    From Scott

    Thanks for all your ideas. I found the ebay sight with the retainer straps. Studied them for a few minutes and went out and fabricated straps in about 30 minutes. Will definitely solve the problem!! Now I'm going to fabricate a rear bumper that will attach to the wait box holes and maybe prevent anyone from backing into something by mistake. I'll use lynch pins for quick disconnect and summer use.

    Thanks again guys,

    Scott

    I did the same, and it holds well. If / when it lets go, I'll do it again!
