Today I had to "make" a scooter headlight bulb. Guy had to have it so he could ride it to work tonight. We didn't have one, so I made one work by taking the mounting base off the old one and putting it on a new bulb. I cut the base I couldn't use off with side cutters. Just like making an o-ring to get someone on the road right away. I ordered a new bulb to have in stock for the future.
The first pic is the good "new" bulbs base cut off next to the complete burned out bulb.
The second pic shows the OEM base on the new bulb and the debris.
