  1. 1

    Locate the plastic tabs that hold the light lens, or cover, in place. Insert the screwdriver into the gap between the lens and the light housing and gently pry until you can see in between the two. Reposition the screwdriver and repeat the process until you locate the tabs.

  2. 2

    Remove the light lens carefully. Release the tab from one side of the housing using the screwdriver as leverage. Pry the lens downward until the lens is released. You now can release the other tab and remove the lens.

  3. 3

    Remove the bulb from the socket. Turn the bulb or simply pull it out, depending on the bulb being replaced.

  4. 4

    Insert the replacement bulb. You may want to test the bulb before replacing the lens.

  5. 5

    Replace the lens by first securing the retaining tab on one side and then gently push the other side of the lens into place. You may need to use the screwdriver as leverage.
