Wig Wag removal

Post by FzCobra » Tue Apr 09, 2019 1:09 am

How do I temporarily remove the Wig Wag module? It appears to be attached with rivet looking things. I need it out of the way so I can access the back of the headlight on the passenger side.

Just get about a 1/4 inch drill bit and start drilling on the rivet. Don't have to go all the way through it the drill bit sort of separates the rivet ring from the shaft after about 10 seconds.

Here is three ways:
THis guy went allt he way through on the drill but you dont have to do that. just enough for the ring to seperate.

Thanks for the quick reply Steve. I've decided I can get to the headlight bulb without removing.

DO you have your wigwags hooked up? If not yo can actually remove that module and just get the harness back to stock. Onle less thing to fail in the line. If you unplug the modules two plugs all you do is plug in the two connectors on the car into one another and you are back to stock. Just FYI
