    I've noticed the head lights on the plow seem to suck on my plow. It's not the illumination, its the housing bolts. They keep coming loose. Anyone know of any way that I can fix this problem. I have tried tightening the bolts that stick through the bottom, but the whole nut and bolt keeps turning. Starting to get frustrated cause when I plow I have one light pointed out in a decent direction, and the other pointed down at the ground about 5 feet in front of the plow after some vibrations.

    Can you take the front off and the light out to get at the top/backside of the bolt and hold it while tightening it?

    The only solution I found was to grind off the 4 rivets on the bottom and take it apart. On mine after spinning it rounded out the inside. A few tack welds took care of that. It did loose some adjustability, so you want to make it is somewhat close while doing this. You can still adjust it with the mounting cup underneath. You can then replace the rivets or use small bolts and locknuts.

    Thats what I will have to look at doing. Cause yea, the housing does have the rivits. It's snowing here now (finally) so it will have to wait and bit.
