    You'll probably have to place the entire light assembly.

    The lenses and light are one assembly. You just take it out of the trailer and go to the boat shop and purchase a new one.

    i have a 2004 pro crappie 175 on a trailstar trailer,just changed a bulb the other day. take the 2 mounting nuts off the back of the light, turn the light upside down, there will be 2 little black screws to remove the clear bulb cover. use 12 volt #1157 bulb.

    I've got a 2001 and the capsule comes out to be replaced. You should be able to get a replacement from bass pro or maybe walmart. I have bought a spare from walmart a couple of years ago. It plugs into the wiring harness in the end of the frame.

    I broke mine trying to change them, so I baught new ones and mounted/ wire them one the trailer. The screws came loose from one and of course it was the side that held the tag. So I taped it up and got a new tag. I have yet to replace the light fixture again. They should make something more robust and easy to work with.

    I have cut the capsule open with a hacksaw and changed the bulb and then siliconed the capsule back together. The only draw back to this is you need to make sure that the capsule is sealed before you put it in the water.
