Ceiling light covers - how to take them off

I'm trying to replace some burnt out lights in the recessed light fixtures. The first light cover I tied to take off seems like it broke off something because I can't put the cover back on. Does any body have these things and figured out how to replace them? The first picture shows the fixture in the ceiling and the second one shows it taken out.

NEVER MIND. I did another search and found the answer on another owners forum. I have never had a coach that had this style of light so I thought it might be unique to CC. Apparently not. I got the next cover off easy enough with the suggestion of using a rubber glove and twisting in and counter clockwise. I'll have to glue the broken one on.

I used one of the rubber pads that they give away to open and close jars. A few of mine had actually melted into the vinyl ceiling covering. Had to use a fingernail under the edge to break them loose. Replaced about 60 halogen lights with LED's and have a few more to go.

Yes twist off and twist on. LED lights are the way to go, last longer and use less power. Have been buying mine thru China/ Japan off e-bay 10 a time. Mine uses different bulbs with the cover on than the ones without the cover on sides over couch and tables. Yea, who would have thought there were over 50 lights.

I agree!! We have over 60 of the puck lights alone so that's not including the undercabinet ones nor the sconces or bay lights. Do have one fluorescent light over the sink but I think I'll just leave it for now as we very seldom use it.
