I cannot figure out how to replace a burned out courtesy light in the right rear door of my 1964 Fleetwood 60 Special.  Does anyone know how to do this without taking the whole door panel off?  I was hoping the light housing would pop out but it does not seem to do so.  Looking at it from below with the bottom of the door panel loosened it looks like one can't replace the bulb without getting the housing out.

Any ideas???

Use a small flat ended jeweler's tool or very small screwdriver to gently pull release the 4 tabs on the plastic lens. There at 2 on the top on the ends and 2 on the bottom on the ends. Just start at top and gently pry down. The light are those cigar shaped bulbs that just pop out once lens is removed.  HEre is a picture with the lenses removed so you can see where the lens tabs pop in at top and bottom ends:

They can be a bit brittle too, so very steady as you go. 

Jason,that helps a bunch.  I will be able to give it a try after dinner.  Thank you very much especially for the pics!

Kevin, I will be very careful.  Thanks.

Jason, the lens came right out.  New bulb in and working. Thanks again for the help and the pics

Fantastic. This is another example of why I like to just concentrate on these 2 years. As a group we can collectively figure most things out! And what we can't...we'll just fake it! :-)

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
