How to Change the Headlight on a Chinese Scooter
A headlight is essential for operating a Chinese scooter at night. (scooter image by dead_account from Fotolia.com)

When driving a Chinese scooter at night, the greatest tool you have for indicating your presence is your headlight. Because scooters are so small, you would be all but invisible if not for the solitary headlight. Changing the headlight requires different steps on different types of scooters. You either have to replace the bulb by unscrewing or unlatching the protective plastic covering, or by unscrewing and removing the entire headlight compartment.
