New (to me) 2000 LW1 wagon. few q's
Hey everyone, did you know that you can put 13 unicycles in this wagon?

I bought the car with about 70,000 miles on it.

The forums have answered my first question (I will put electriacal grease on the contacts of my right rear driving light)

1)It says to replace the whole bulb and grey plastic 'bulb-holder', not jsut the bulb. Can you replace just the bulb? I'd rather spend $1 than $20

2)The previous owner must have put on RainAway or some such product...which on a good day works great...if itis pouring and you are driving 120kmh...but if it foggy out first thing in the morning, I am effectively blind from all the residue left behind after windshield there a product that I can use to rid my window of all traces? (this same product might get rid of the '2000 Fully Loaded' I see written on the window through the morning fog...they must use a wax-based crayon or soemthign to write stuff on the window.

thanks, I love this car!

Get some denatured alcohol or acetone. Be careful not to get any on the paint! Comsumer products that remove sticker goo should work too. Acidic compounds will also work. I can't think of any chemical that will hurt glass, so just try different things. Some things will obviously leave residue, but the alcohol or acetone will take it off. I use it to remove sticker film.

Chemical labs often use glass drain pipes since they won't get eaten away like metals or plastics.

stop light bulbs
gently pry the 2 wire leads that come from the light bulb off the metal plates in the grey holder with a pair of needle nose plyers. They're soldered on, but will pry off easily. Replace with the appropriate bulb and bend the new wire leads over the metal plates. I've replaced all mine this way and have had no problem.
