    I have 2009 Boos V plow. First night of snow, one light was out to start with, now both headlights are out. The amber lights work. Is it just the bulb? If so how is that to come out? My fingers barely get up under there to the plug let alone unplug it and then I still dont see how the bulb is going to come out of there? Truck lights work, everything else is fine.

    4 screws in the face of the light take the assembly out and boom there ya go the h.i.r bulbs ($30+) arent cheap so just go get equivalent halogens which are 9006 i believe

    I called the dealer today. I now have no lights at all. He thinks a relay or fuse or ground is not right cuz now no lights come on at all. Also the 4 screws and boom - not sure. It looks sealed to me. I have taken them out but there are plastic clips that look as though it is one sealed unit. It will not pull apart at all. So we'll see what happens after more checking.

    Well got the lights figured out. The ground wire was cracked off which must of blew the lights out on the plow cuz they were toast. So yes popped the lights off, replaced the bulbs, re-did the ground wire connection and back in business.

    So it ended up being a ground? I am having almost the same problem. All my ambers work on the plow but the headlights won't do anything even when I switch the truck to plow switch. Where was the ground an issue? Maybe I could start there....
