The trigger is a multi-speed switch and requires replacing the whole assembly. Soldering is necessary for this guide. Please familiarize yourself with the iFixit guide on Soldering before starting.

  1. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement, Disassembling Ridgid R86034 Housing: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • Use the flat side of a metal spudger to peel the black rubber cover off of the casing.

    • Use some force; the rubber cover is securely attached to the housing.

    • Rotate the casing until it fits onto the housing with no gaps between it and the clear cover.

    • Orientation is important when putting the rubber cover on the casing.

  2. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 2, image 1 of 2 Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 2, image 2 of 2
    • Remove the plastic cover with your hands.

    • There is no need to force off the plastic cover. The plastic cover should be much easier to remove than the rubber cover.

    • Unscrew the four 16 mm long screws from the back panel with a T10 Torx Screwdriver.

    • Use a firm grip to peel off the back panel. It is sealed tight and requires a good amount of force to remove.

  4. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 4, image 1 of 2 Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 4, image 2 of 2
    • Unscrew the eight 15 mm T10 Torx screws from the housing

    • The screw hole located nearest the battery port is deep and small. Most screwdrivers with replaceable bits will not fit into the hole. Instead, use a conventional screwdriver that fits.

  5. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • Place the driver flat on a table before completely separating the two halves of the housing so components of the drill don't fall out during opening.

    • Pry apart the two halves of the housing at the back side of the driver using the metal spudger.

    • The housing is easier to remove if you pry from multiple sides.

    • Do not remove the direction switch.

    • Pull out all electrical components from housing by hand.

    • Lift out the motor.

    • Follow the wires.

    • The components should come out of their respective slots with ease and require little force to lift out.

    • The circuit board located nearest the battery pack and the LED light will be hard to pull out.

    • Remember to precisely place all components in their correct slots with their correct orientations when reassembling.

  7. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement, LED: step 7, image 1 of 1
    • Identify the LED light. The LED light is the component with clear casing and has two wires attached, located toward the bottom of the driver.

    • Cut the pink and white wires attached to the LED at a point that is a little more than 1/4 inch from the LED.

  9. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 1
    • Strip the wires back about 1/4 inch on the LED.

  10. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 2 Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 10, image 2 of 2
    • Strip the wires that were connected to the LED on the circuit board to approximately 1/4 inch.

  11. Ridgid R86034 LED Replacement: step 11, image 1 of 1
    • Solder the new LED striped wires to the wire attached to the circuit board.

    • Wrap the soldered connection with electrical tape, to ensure that the circuit isn't shorted.
