Hi all, 

I'd like to exchange the halogen bulb with a led bulb in this light. Who knows how to open these lights? Is it with a screwdriver between the rooftop and the chrome ring, or is there another trick?

Just use a screwdriver. Or better ... just your fingers.
I think I managed to just use my fingers.

The lights are coming from the Swedish company Frilight
They now also have genuine LED lights available, in the same dimensions like the original Halogen lights.

I removed the bezel and changed all the bulbs on my 370 to LED.  The problem was in reinstalling the bezel.  Wherever the lights were set in the soft liner I could not get enough pressure on the bezel to make it "stick".  No problem where the light was set in a hard finish.  Any suggestions?
Thanks.

My experiences after replacing old ones with new LED versions, is that the 2 screws fastening the light should not be tightened too much. I had to unscrew mine a litte to be able to click the glas and frame in place.

A little Off-topic...who knows what type of bulb is  the masthead light? 
I'd like to change it with led going upmast just once.
thanks
