I don't know what you want to do.
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>I you want to replace the bulb socket/switch then you will get the replacement parts and a special tool in some specialised shops.

<LI>If you only want to remove the old socket/switch you can remove (break it out) with a srewdriver.

<LI>If you intend to make a mod eg with white Nichia's then you will find an idea here in the Minimag thread page 9 and a drawing of the whole thing here http://edusite10.tripod.com/remuen/adapter.html.

This solutions works very fine. Main advandages are:
- more room in the head
- no wirings to the switch/bulb socket
- no other mechanical adaptations to bring the switch to work

I tried various solutions to bring the whole mechanical thing to work - that's the only good way I have found. And with this solution you won't have any problems with the adjustment of the LED - the stay adjusted.
[/list]

Good luck!
