removing outer headlight ring on '40 160

Post by lc3packs » Sun Jan 17, 2016 12:22 pm

I need to remove the outer retaining ring - the painted one, on our 1940 160 to change the bulb. The Owner's manual says remove the screw on the bottom and then rotate slightly to the left. I did not restore it so wondering if when it was painted in place or put back on before the laquer dried fully. It will not budge! Is there a trick I missed?
