Help, please! Re: RV Luminaire VR Fixture

We have the above fixture in our 5er that has burned out. We don't know how to change it. Do we replace the entire fixture or is there a way to replace only the bulb?

Thanks for your help with this silly question!!

Here ya go

Interior Halogen
To Remove:
1. Grasp light fixture and pull down
slightly then tilt fixture to one side.
This will allow one spring clip to
come out.
Push spring clip inward with a finger
as clip is being eased out. Hold clip
to prevent clipping from pinching
2. Tilt fixture to other side and ease the
other spring clip out.
3. Unscrew the light lens
counterclockwise and remove.
4. Carefully grasp bulb and pull from
socket. Replace with the same type
of bulb.
5. Use a clean cloth or piece of tissue to
grasp new bulb. Do not touch bulb
directly as this can cause a “hot spot”
and result in immediate bulb failure.
6. Align contacts of bulb with terminals
in fixture base. Insert bulb until
contacts are firmly seated.
To Reinstall:
7. Align tabs on light lens with slots in
fixture base. Rotate lens clockwise
until light lens locks into place.
8. Fold up both spring clips and insert
light fixture into opening. Once in
opening the spring clips will expand
and lock light fixture into place.
Do not touch halogen lighting while
on. They can cause a burn. Do not
touch replacement bulbs. Oil in the
hands can cause a “hot-spot” to occur.
If the bulb is touched, allow it to cool
and clean the bulb with alcohol.

Wow ~ thanks, SmokyRV, for the super quick reply! My husband followed your instructions, and the fixture is ready for the replacement bulb. We also appreciate the warning about pinching one's finger ~ that had already happened before I made the inquiry! Ouch!!
This forum is the best!!
