Pull down on the clear light cover, back to front. Use a pointed object to wiggle bulb out of place. MAKE SURE LIGHT WILL NOT COME ON, WHEN REPLACING IT, GETS EXTREMLY HOT, FAST AND WILL BLISTER YOUR SKIN LIKE MAD. --- When sure light will not be on, when you put new bulb in, put one side in, then the other.. give it a roll to make sure it's in firmly, replace plastic cover, front to back. and you're golden.
