I have a Kindle Paperwhite and had set up the Family Library a couple of years ago.
However, the 2nd adult has now changed his amazon account and set up a new one, including new email address, and because of this he no longer has access to our library.
So I need to change the settings for the 2nd adult (same person but new accouont). I thought to simply remove him and add him again using his new data, but a warning came up that if I removed him, I would not be able to set someone up for the next 180 days...
Can anybody please let me know how to change the settings of the 2nd adult in my Family Library?
Info: We're from Belgium and live on and off in Belgium & Spain
Did he open a new Amazon account, or did he just update his information on his existing account? If he opened a new account, you'll need to wait the 180 days to add his new account.
It's best to update information on an existing account rather than opening a new one. Doing that should not affect his library access. He can sign into his original account, go up to the Account & Lists menu at the top, select Your Account, and then Login & Security to edit his email address and other information.

I'm afraid he opened a brand new account, because his old one was still registered in a local Belgian provider he no longer uses, what with moving his business to Spain.
So he'll need to reactivate his old account, hopefully it still exists
Are you referring to his EMAIL or his AMAZON account?
No Amazon account is registered to any local internet or email provider. They're completely standalone things and, as J Penrose says, all people need to do if their email account changes is update their Amazon account to use the new email address instead of the old one.
If your second adult really has rushed in and set up a whole new Amazon account just because he got a new email address, then he's created a whole pot of confusion and problems that a quick 2 minute chat with Amazon could have avoided.
