Never replaced one of these, but is it possible that the wires and socket can be pushed through the rubber boot from the bottom, allowing access to the bulb?

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

i have tryed this but the wire casing is heat sealed by the factory i was considering just cutting the rubber boot but this will be permenantly on show due to positioning

Guess you've tried rolling the boot back on itself? If not, some WD-40 ought to help things slide easier.

Soaking old rubber parts in oil of wintergreen or DOT3 brake fluid for a few hours will soften them up.

Would this not cause damage to the rubber long term??

Not sure about the brake fluid, but the oil of wintergreen doesn't seem to. That trick has been around a long time, and I haven't heard of any problems. I used it to soften stiff carb diaphragm and carb boot.
