    Thanks for the reply, but it is not helpful. The bulb does not unscrew. Maybe someone has actually done this repair before, and could share the actual procedure.

    Wait a minute, I have the exact same flashlight in my hand, It unscrews in the front like I said, and the bulb unscrews, it is held in by a little chrome thing with teeth on the top for your fingers to grip. The little maglites have bulbs with 2 pins on them, they don't screw in. I have put high intensity bulbs in my maglites, I have about 10 of them kicking around here and a drawer full of bulbs. Now unless you got something different there, I don't know, but mine are Maglites, 3 "D" cell, and 4 "D" cell. and 2"AA" cell lites.

    I have the same problem with my 2 D cell maglite with an LED bulb. No way to unscrew the bulb or grasp it to pull it out.

I need the small tool to be able to get into the outer cover( the black button )to be able to change the bulb. where I can replace the bulb.


I believe you have to take the rubber cover over the button off, then push on the edges of the button, it's attached to the light assembly so you can pull it out, call Maglite tech, they'll help. Good luck.

My 6d maglite keeps blowing the bulb


6D Maglite? As in 6 D cell batteries?

1-1/2 Volts (Each battery), times 6 = 9 Volts.
Using the proper bulb?

The original is a Krypton bulb. (No, I didn't make the name up)

Guess what happens if you put a 3 Volt bulb with 9 Volts?

2 D-cell maglite bulb lights up only when I press it down after removing lense. Everything else appears to work ok


Make sure you have the MagLite bulb with the flange, it is integral to the operation of the light.

I have a 3AA LED mini maglite with stuck batteries. The best I can tell they have not leaked. I tried freezing the unit as well as heating the barrel to no avail. Is there a way of removing the bulb...


well, I have a 3 cell mini maglite AA with a corroded battery stuck up next to the LED. I have searched but not found a way to remove the LED to push out the battery with a dowel. The best solution I read about was to drill a hole in the battery and insert a large screw and pull it all out.
(My Maglite is from 2009 or 2010, but I think they made this model in 2011, 2012 and 2013- this is for SEO!)

I have a five D cell Maglite. Seems to always


There are diffferent mag lite bulbs made for different amounts of batteries. Be sure that you have the 5 cell light bulb. Also try to keep your fingers off the glass. if you get any oils on it, wipe it off before turning it on.
Also you can get mag lite specific bulbs...they cost more but they're worth it.

I can't get the bulb out of my 3 D cell MgaLite?


After unscrewing and removing the reflector/lens housing just push in lightly on the bulb twist counter clockwise and it should pop right out.
