    I know none you guys replaced the Rops light , well darn it !

    I need to ! Using Agri-Fab Mow and Vac yesterday. I stopped the machine, walking back with the gas can in my hand. There it was ! The port side light (I'm a old Tin Can sailor) hanging like a dead mackerel from the wires. It broke where it attaches to the base. My son has some super glue I'm going to try. I'm wondering if someone could point out the steps to remove the light from the tubing. I tend to break things even worse when I don't know what I'm doing. Some times happens when I think I know what I'm doing. Remember the dominant word,, ,,old. Thanks for any help you can give me. Dan

    It's super easy. Only a couple of bolts hold the light to the ROPS. The electrical connectors can be found near the base of the ROPS. Disconnect them and tie a string or some fishing line to the wires. This will help you pull the new wires back down the ROPS. You may even be luck to have a connector right inside the light, but I don't recall seeing one when I had mine apart.

    When I broke the light on my 1025R, I found out that at the bottom of the ROPS the wires for the light terminate in plugs. Once those were disconnected, I had to also take the zip ties and plastic wire cover off to get the wires pulled up. Then to reinstall I just used a string with a nut on it to fish the wires back down.

    Yeah - NONE of us have EVER done that before.... Here's the write-up I did when I moved them to the inside of the ROPS to avoid breaking ANOTHER one.

    So many on here we could have a support group for it.

    That makes you a member of the "Rops Light Relocation Club".....or is it the "Modifier of Rops Light Squad"......Trying to think of a clever acronym....obviously it's not working.

    I haven't actually whacked mine... yet...(as I knock on wood). I was just being silly. Just so you can all learn a bit of engineering jargon, this is what we like to refer to as "sharing molecules", which of course never turns out quite well. I may not have dis-proportionally re-positioned the illumination apparatus on the tractor yet, but I have been guilty of inadvertently overlooking a slight interference in the past.

    Don't feel bad Danbeck, I broke one about 2 hrs into my first time with my tractor. :empathy3:
    Sad thing is I read how others had done it, and told myself, "oh you'll be fine, that will never happen to me."
