Lights, I give up...

I'd like to change the bulbs in the lights above our bathroom sink but I can't seem to figure out how to get at the bulbs...
I don't want to break the cover, I think it's glass.

Here's a picture of the lights, from the outside!

Yes they are glass covers, they come off with a counter clock wise turn( while looking up at light) should be LED bulbs depending on year of unit.

I think those frosted covers unscrew from the ceiling

Got it!!

thanks for the replies... armed with your suggestions I went out and fought with the lights again. This time, I won!!

Turns out they don't turn, that is to say they don't unscrew, they 'just' pull off. There are three little clips in the base that holds the glass piece on and you have to pull down to remove. I sort of turned and pulled at the same time as well has finding a point on the cover that seemed to 'want' to come off.

Here are some pictures of the lamp apart.

Next thing is to find some LEDs to replace these bulbs. I'm not sure if they are just simple incandescent or halogen bulbs. And I'm not sure what LED would replace them... any suggestions?

I went to M4 Products and searched for my bulb types and it showed the LED equivalents.

Your light fixture is a little different then mine, but you're looking for a G4 (pins are 4 mm apart) bipin LED light bulb to replace the halogen bulb. The original may be 10w, 15w or 20w bulb and put out approx 140,210,280 lumens respectfully so it's not that bright.

Something like this Mudder® 2pcs G4 Base DC/AC 12-24V 6W COB SMD 220-260lm LED Bright Warm White Light Spotlight Bulbs - - Amazon.com would be a great replacement.
