Remove fluorescent light cover

I have a 2005 Endeavor and for the life of me cannot remove the 36" fluorescent light cover in the kitchen (I am changing everything to LED lighting). I have removed the screw from the back end and pulled/pried and it will not come down. I have also tapped it forward and back and side to side (small blows so as not to destroy it) to no avail. I thought I was bright enough to disassemble anything but I don't want to tear it apart. Any help out there?

Most fluorescent light covers I've seen are removed by either squeezing the cover to disengage the retaining tits molded into the cover, OR prying out the sides to disengage the cover. Sometimes the plastic gets hard and less flexible as it ages, increasing the possibility of damaging it during this procedure.

If you are talking the galley light remove the button covering the screw on the one end then take out the screw. You then slide the wood end to the left not down.. It has a groove in it that holds the light panel in place you will then be able to slide out the panel the same from that side. I hope that helps I replaced my fluoresces to led as well

Wink Remove fluorescent light cover

This fixture measures 36" long X 18" wide, has a wooden outer frame with a plexiglass insert. The plexiglass is tightly adhered to the wooden frame and short of busting it out I do not see a way to remove the glass. The plexiglass is tight up against the actual fixture.


Got it! Talked to the factory and they said remove the screw, remove the end piece and slide the plexiglass out. Did not work but found that the small end piece that the screw holds on comes down not back.

Glad to help I put in LED in my Galley as well. I just pulled all of the guts out of the lights then used the base to put in LED strips from Amazon. I used the 5050 warm lights from Lemonbest. to make sure they stuck I also added double back tape and then took a bead of clear silicone alone each side of the tape. I did the same thing to all of the fluoresces in the coach. It lights up the area real nice. I liked it so much that I also took the same led strips I used the water proof ones and put them in the cargo bays. Lights it up real nice and it will save the batteries when I am boondocking in the mountains. Take care.
