ID:	66087I have a 2014 Thor Challenger GT and I want to replace the halogen bulbs in the hockey puck fixtures but cannot see how the fixtures open to get to the bulbs. The fixtures are 3 & 4" and have a frosted glass cover. See attached pic.
Thanx,
Ed

Where are the pics? On our lights, we just press up against the glass and twist CCW.

X2 counter clockwise as your looking at them.
some of them are very hard to remove the glass. I had to on a few of mine, pry them gently from the metal base under the glass from the ceiling, then I was able to get glass removed from lamp housing. On a couple I ended up damaging the springs that hold them in. But they were easily bent back into shape enough to hold them in.

I have these exact fixtures and replaced all of my bulbs (35+ of them!). Turn counter clockwise and pull down at the same time. Two of mine required several tries, with rests in between (yes, seriously). One of them was stuck. 4 guys couldn't remove it so I finally put black tape on my channel locks and was willing to trash it to remove. It did come off and I found that it was glued into place? Not sure why, as I got it back on fine?? Anyway--well worth the effort. Love my new cooler, brighter, whiter LED lights.

Got mine from AliExpress for much cheaper than elsewhere. I did have to wait a while for them to arrive from Hong Kong though. There are different options, but start here: http://m.aliexpress.com/item/5798328...bilesitedetail

Although your lenses look a bit different from Tiffin's, the fixture size is probably the same. We use a jar opener and never crack a lens. You push it up against the ceiling, squeeze and turn CCW. After watching Tiffin factory techs with large tape wrapped pliers my wife picked up a set of these at WalMart. Much easier.

On edit, sorry I can't get pix to post?????
