    Anyone swap displays between the GLS-6900-9 and the GLS-6900-1?

    I'm looking at getting my nephew a G for Christmas. I think he'd dig the GLS-6900-1 but with a negative display. I'd want to swap bull bars and light buttons too. I tried to remove the bull bars on my GS400 to see how it might be done but it seems it will take more than just popping them off with my fingers. The light button I'm clueless about.

    Might want to leave the swapping out of anything to the professionals. As you have never done it before it would be a waste of 2 watches.

    I've swapped four Rangeman modules but that's all, never a 6900. The Rangeman doesn't have bullbars, so that's a bit different as well. I'd also be curious to see what anyone else has done before I make the attempt.

    It's not that different from the Rangeman, just more tedious with the buttons.

    The bull bars on the GLS6900 are easy to pop off. The light button is an easy swap as well but because the C-clip that holds it is so small, you just need to be aware and keep an eye on it at all times. It's pretty easy to lose. I'd say that if you're comfortable with swapping modules then exchanging light buttons should be easy as well.

    the bullbar on your (assuming you mean) G-D-400 is way thicker than the one on the 6900, its pretty much part of the bezel/case combo. the 6900 will come off pretty easy.
    heaps of posts and tips on here about removing buttons, its just a little C or E clip, remove that and the button assembly comes out with spring and gaskets. the module itself pops out like the ranger one but no sensor = even easier.

    Like the above post stated, the button swap will be the most difficult due to the c-clip on the button. What I did was put some silicone grease on the clip before so it doesn't go flying when you pop it off. Also, when reinstalling, to help keep in in place before you push it on the button.

    Thanks everyone. I'll give it a go.

    I've swapped light buttons before on a 6900. Side buttons are easy. The light button is a pain in the butt getting the c-clip back on at the angle the stem on the light sets. Get the right tools (like angled tweezers) The clips are fairly easy to bend and can break. Also, be somewhere clean with good lighting. I lost a c-clip last time I did this, but luckily had a few spares.
