One of my globes inside the headlight (the one thats infront of the battery) has blown, its not the parkers or the high beam one, so its the one in the middle :P.

Just wondering, how hard is it to get the blown globe out, like do i have to take the battery out?? or that plastic cover, or something else??? And were can i grab a replacement globe, and how much am i up for aswell

Thanks fellas
