the base should drop out of the top housing.Can you not wiggle the black part down out of the metal surround

Looks similar to the Perco units on my pontoon. If so, only the center black part comes out. A small blade screwdriver to gently pry under the tab where the wires go in should do it.

IIRC you can also push down on the colored lens to help it move.

So Pry on the middle black circle, not the the edge against the housing, and push down on the lens?

FYI for anyone who needs to do it in the future. The entire black piece pries out of the housing. I used a small flat head screw driver. I did break a little bit of the lens in the process, none that will effect the function though.

That's not a 2002

The lens is easy to replace. It is a Perko # 296, about $10-$15

Boat. But it could be, I just checked. That last year for the classic Montauk was, in fact, 2002. They even changed the name to 170 Montauk, of if you prefer, Montauk 170.

The serial # ends 02.

Don't scare me like that Tom, I thought I had a fake.

It's not a serial number, it's a Hull Identification Number (HIN) which is different from the serial numbers Whaler used to apply to the hulls.
