Replace flood light bulb?

How do I replace the bulb in my flood lights?

I have a 2014 V-Lite with flood lights on both sides. The door-side bulb is burned out.

I can see a little hole in the bottom of the white plastic trim, but I don't see a way to get into the fixture to replace the bulb. Has anyone else had any luck with this?

Thanks!

Just squeeze either the top and bottom or the sides and the lens will pop off.

Yep, there are tabs on top and bottom. I just popped mine off and replaced them with LED's. No bug attraction ;-)

These right here work awesome!!

I put the amazon link in my first post. Should take you right to the bulb.

I had trouble squeezing mine with just my hands so I used a flat screwdriver and gently pryed it open on the top.

Thanks...sorry I missed it.

Do you know if the same bulb will fit in the yellow "porch" light?

Most definitely. Its just a yellow lens. The porch light and door light are the exact same and both mine have LED's in them now. I changed out all the ones inside also but those are different bulbs then outside ;-)
