I recently traded my 1992 JD GT262, for a 2009 JD X360. Inside the lens of the X360, there is alot of dirt and is keeping the headlights from shining very bright. I was finally able to get the bulb sockets out of the headlight housing in the grill. I nearly broke one of the headlight sockets. I cleaned all of the dirt off of the bulbs, then tried to press the two tabs of the lens, behind the grill, thinking the lens would pop out, but it wouldn't come out. Does anyone know how to get the clear plastic lens off of the grill, so I can clean the inside of the headlight housing? Also, are there any 1156 LED bulbs I can use in these sockets, to replace the incandescent bulbs? I tried some 1156 LED bulbs I had on hand, but they didn't light up. I installed LED bulbs in the GT262 I had, but I had to replace the original headlight wiring harness and sockets, with a new wiring and sockets for the GT262. Will I have to do the same with this X360, to install LED bulbs? If I can put LED bulbs in the X360, what are the brightest LED bulbs for this X300 Series tractor?

Maybe the LED lights didn't light because the wiring was wrong. Incandescent bulbs don't care which side is plus and which side is minus, LED lights do care. Get it backwards and they don't light.

I bought LED's for my 1998 John Deere 345 from Superbrite LED's. They replaced the 1156's the tractor came with and had no problems installing them. They're great when snowblowing after dark!

Did you figure out how to take the lens out? I would like to clean mine as well.
