Hi. Having trouble with lights. Both left side. Unrelated.

See pics.

Front left Is just loose. How do I tighten that?

Rear left is missing a piece of plastic or rubber inside. How do I fix that?

Any help or insight is much appreciated.

Thanks!

This is a typical case to take it to a Vespa dealer. They will fix it in a jiffy.

Sorry. Try to adjust the front one by twisting it around gently.

Coul you give us a front picture of the indicators?

The rear one looks broken. I would call Scooerpartsco to see if they have a replacement.

Scooterwest sells a kit to replace all of the turn signal pods with lights integrated into the existing front and rear lights. Really cleans up the look of the bike. I had trouble finding the kit on their website, so you might have to give them a call. There's a Rocket how-to video on YouTube on how to install the kit.

But not sure if it addresses the issue he is having.

Thanks!
The rear one is broken, for sure. Iím thinking I can replace that. But the front one is just loose. And I canít figure out how to tighten it. Iíve wound it around, but itíll only go a turn or two and it feels forced.

Feels like I should remove the panel... but that scares me.

You could use JB Plastic bonder if you do not need to re-open the piece to change the bulb.
Or eliminate front and rear pods, that is my suggestion

If you want to keep the pods, for the front one that needs tightening you take the lens off by removing the screw then the silver reflector has two prongs that secure over the mounting arm, the reattach them. You can buy the rear one at scooterwest for $32
