Default How I put in a new light bulb in my Pfaff 7570

I do not have the thing that is suppose to remove/install a light bulb. Bought replacement bulbs some time ago as I was trying to find 'anything' that might work.

UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE BEFORE DOING WHAT IS DESCRIBED BELOW.

WELL, I found an 8oz thin wall water bottle, stuck the dead bulb in the top to see how it fit--PERFECT. Just came down from testing the bottle top. I cut most of the bottle away but left about an inch below the thick top. Then with some blue tape to hold the bulb to the bottle top. I had to use my finger to find out where those 2 little side prongs needed to be and with bulb taped to bottle top pushed it up and twisted it and NOW I can see again with the machine light.
My new tool is in the tool box on the machine bed.
So anyone who needs to change a light bulb, go find a thin walled water bottle to rig up your own very cheap installer tool.
