Re: Compass Bulb Replacement

Don't know about that one, but I need to take apart my older Ritchie compass, repair the gasket and refill with fluid. I went to the manufacturers website and they had drawings and instructions for doing repairs. You might try looking a the manufacturers website or give them a call. You'll probably need to go there for the bulb(s) anyhow.

AFAIK, Plastimo don't make anything, they just re-brand. So you may find more info if you can find the OEM.

Re: Compass Bulb Replacement

Are the two gray tabs removable? screws behind them?
