The reflector holds the bezel and head together. When you unscrew the
bezel from the head, the reflector normally stays with the bezel.
However, sometimes the reflector will stay with the head. The procedure
changes depending on which circumstance happens.
Reflector stays with the head. Put the head on the table

sitting on the reflector. Keeping the head on the table, continue
unscrewing the bezel, taping the lens every half turn or so. When the
bezel is free, carefully lift it straight up and set it aside. You
should be left with the head, reflector, the lower O-ring, the glass
lens and possibly the upper O-ring in the stack.
Reflector stays with the bezel. Set the head aside, LED side up.
Using a strap wrench, unscrew the reflector from the bezel until the
O-ring is exposed and stop there - you should now be able to use your
fingers to finish unscrewing the reflector. Put the bezel/reflector

the O-rings sit in their little grooves and do not come out and get
pinched. If the reflector stayed with the bezel during disassembly,
lift the stack off the table keeping it in the same orientation and
place it on the head and screw the reflector into the head. Tighten
