charge for the recommended time. If the unit gets dirty gently clean the outer surface of
the spotlight unit with a soft cloth moistened with a mild solution of water and detergent.
Periodically inspect the condition of recharge adapters, connectors, and wires. Replace
any components that may have become worn or broken.
7. PARTS REPLACEMENT
Three parts are replaceable by users. The quartz halogen bulb and sealed lead acid battery
are proprietary and are available through Vector Manufacturing. A substitute 6 volt H3 100
watt bulb may be used instead of a Vector bulb. These can also be purchased from popular
automotive parts suppliers nationwide. The DC charging adapter fuse is replaceable.
Contact Vector Manufacturing’s Technical Support Department for replacement parts and
any additional information that you may need. They may be reached toll free
(866) 584-5504.
7.1 DC PLUG FUSE REPLACEMENT
The fuse in the DC plug protects the charging circuit of the DC recharge adapter. If there
is no slight warming of the DC plug during recharge, you should suspect that 12 volts
DC is not powering the plug or the fuse is opened.
To replace the fuse:
1. Unscrew the end cap of the DC plug (counterclockwise).
2. Remove spring center contact and fuse.
3. Check fuse with a continuity checker.
4. If blown, locate replacement fuse with same type and rating.
5. Replace the fuse, spring, contact and end cap.
6. Screw end cap clockwise until it is finger tight-do not over-tighten.
7. Check for proper operation of DC charging adapter.
7.2 SPOTLIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
To replace the H3 type 12 volt bulb, you will need a small Phillips-head type screwdriver and a replacement bulb.

7.3 REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK
The sealed lead acid battery has a life of several years, if recharged promptly after each
use. When a fully charged battery only provides about ten minutes or less of spotlight
operation, it should be replaced with a new one. To replace the battery, you will need
a narrow shaft Phillips-head screwdriver and a replacement battery. The battery pack
can be replaced by doing the following:
1. Complete the bulb replacement steps through step 4, to remove the reflector
assembly.
2. Remove all the Phillips-head screws (counterclockwise) that fasten the two halves of
the housing body.
3. Separate the two body halves and carefully pop out the handle.
WARNING: DO NOT ALLOW BARE WIRES OR CONNECTORS TO CONTACT
EACH OTHER; DANGEROUS SPARKING CAN OCCUR.
