Well first of all I thought I ordered the wrong light so I called and ordered the Halogen light. When the Light came in I went to change it out and realized the first bulb I ordered was the correct one. The Parts select customer service was extremely helpful and made my mistake easily resolved. At any rate, changing the bulb was a piece of cake! Just unscrew the plate (1 screw) and take out the old bulb screw in the new one. Presto, it was done. However my glass cover plate for the light somehow broke, so I ordered a new one with the help of customer service. I replaced the plate which only took about 5 mins. To replace the plate you just unscrew the one screw and on the metal frame the glass plate sits on a metal frame which has prongs that you pullup and then slide the glass out. Once the glass is out you slide the new one up and push down the prongs. Lift the frame back up and screw it in.
