Map Lights

Does anyone know if the map lights along side the drivers seat and passenger seat have replaceable bulbs or do you replace the whole thing? If the bulbs are replaceable how do you open them to get to the bulb. Thought I would ask before I break it.

I wish I could find the clips to hold the map lights up and out of the way.

Alpine Road Warrior, perhaps you could post a picture of the map light installed in your coach so we could better assist you? In our Apex, they are gooseneck type lamps. If yours are like that, there is a notch in the Fresnel lens where you could insert a small screwdriver and pry off to reveal the lamp you want to replace.

This is how mine is. Picked out the lens with a small screwdriver and replaced the bulb.

I got tired of trying to fix one of mine and just bought a whole new fixture for my coach (about $12.00 on Amazon)
