remove one screw from light and remove bulbs replace. I found the light plate had a lot of grease on rubber type washer for the glass cover. I cleaned it as best I could. The real trick was putting the screw back in when the Microwave is in with the hood Fan and the screw must go straight up and not miss the hole. I had someone hold the plate up and the screw went in. Your instruction book shows your filters and how to clean them. They are easy to and clean. What I found best is the lights they had been in for 15 years and the new ones are so much brighter. I now have an old set of filters that can be put in the dishwasher and used as a replacement when the new ones need to be cleaned.
