They appear to be ceiling lights - if they are the unscrew counter clockwise - they can be hard to get off

I had a similar looking light go out recently & somewhere on the forum I read that they will just pop out. I tried that & broke the tab on the glass lens. After I got it out, I saw it had to be turned. In my stash of goodies I found an identical light assy & I still haven't been able to get the lens off the body & that's holding it tightly w/ both hands! I'm not sure how you can get it off the ceiling w/ just one hand. When I get more time I will attack the replacement light again until it says 'Uncle'. If someone knows of a trick to get this light apart, pls let us know.

Yes they are ceiling lights in a 2016 DX3. Yea I'd love to know, I have tried everyone in my coach to the point I feel like I'm going to break them they will not budge.. I have have several people say they twist off but I just don't see how that is possible..

I have 2017 DX3 and my lights are from Command Electronics and they screw off. They may have changed type from 2016 to the 2017 model year.
Brian or Greg would know the answer to that??

They just pull straight down and the two spring loaded clips spread out. You can put a finger in one side and push the clip up until it comes free, then the other side just drops out. It feels like you are going to break them but you wont. The springs are just really strong.

Not sure about lights from different models, but Hubby has always used a fuel and oil filter wrench to remove interior lights. Put a cloth over edges of the tool to keep from marring the light.

He has used that tool in many of our past Rvs. He tried it on the light over the head of the bed in the DX3 and it worked great. He grabs the edge of the light cover with the tool and turns it. Hope this helps.

If they are glass sense, the lease screws off and then two screws hold the light on.

IF they are a plastic lease, then they are what we call "mouse trap" style and are spring loaded. And like a mouse trap....careful of your fingers
