Is the front clamshell removal for the 400 the same as the S1?

Also wonder what the best removal guide was. Saw some text posts but anything with diagrams or pictures would be appreciated

Thank

It's probably more or less the same. The service notes are available from the VSIC site for as little as $15 IIRC.

Welcome | VSI
Yes, definitely worth buying an hour subscription to VSI and downloading the guide. This is not a difficult job. The lotus time estimate is 2-2.5 hours depending on if you need to re align the headlights or not.

Headlight alignment can double that time....you better have skinny forearms. Those 2 front screws can be an absolute bastard.

I assume headlight alignment is required for removal and re-assembly of the clam shell every time? I guess it's good I have nice thin arms then lol
