Parking light lens 1940 160

What is the trick to removing the lens to replace the bulb on my parking light? Previous owner installed after market turn signals that work through them as well. It appears the lens wants to unscrew like those on the 52 I had but go just so far and I did not want to force it.

Yes, it unscrews but might be tight if it hasn’t been removed for a long time. Turn it counter-clockwise (when facing it from the front) to remove it. The little stainless piece around the edge of the glass should thread out with it.

It twists off, but you only need to twist about a quarter turn. It's not threaded.

Then rock it left and right to slide out. The bottom of the glass is notched to fit the bezel, so they should come out together, not separately. When you pull it out, you’ll see how the bezel back twists into the light socket holder.
