Introdução

Guides you in taking apart the Slimlighter Super-LED for maintenance or just pure curiousity :)

Este teardown (desmontagem analítica) não é um guia de reparo. Para reparar seu/sua Whelen Slimlighter Super-LED, use o nosso manual de serviço.

  1. This is Whelen's second generation Slimlighter. Whilst the first generation had multiple 5mm LED's, this generation Slimlighter has 'only' 12 TIR6 style LED's.

    • Enough chatter, let's take it apart :)

  2. Optionally one can first take of the suctioncup brackets. They are held in place by two Philips screws.
    • Optionally one can first take of the suctioncup brackets. They are held in place by two Philips screws.

    • Next you can take off the retaining brackets. They are held back by a little notch that has to be lifted with a spudger. Repeat this step for the other side.

    • Once the notch is lifted pull the bracket away from the light as shown.

    • Once the brackets are released the light can easily be dissasembled. Begin by lifting the diffuser lens up as shown.

      • One can also have clear lenses here, the procedure is the same.

    • Note that the lens has a similar notch on the other side, underneath the Whelen logo. Carefully pull the lens out from underneath, don't force anything or it will break.

    • With the diffuser lenses removed the optics are exposed. They are not secured by anything so carefulle take them out as shown

    • Nifty little optics here, kudo's to Whelen.

    • Try activating the light now, see the differences with and without these optics

    • Now you can CAREFULLY take out the LED assembly. It's attached to a metal heat dissapating bracket. CAREFUL with the wiring. Note that the bracket is retained by the plastic housing. It might need some help before it gives way.

    • The wires are held back /retained by a stickon Whelen logo. The logo can easily be removed, just tear it off carefully.

    • Once the Whelen logo tab is removed the light comes apart completley.

    • Take out the two metal brackets holding the light.

    • Note that one of the brackets holds (part of) the flasher assembly.

    • If desired, take out the six Philips screws to remove the LED circuit board from the bracket.

    • Note that the rear circuit board is held back by the same screws.

    • The LED board can easily be replaced by any other TIR6 board, any color (as far as I could check!)

    • Note that there is cooling paste between the LED board and the bracket. Make sure you replace it.

    • All done! No more steps required :)
