American Eagle Porch Light

I can't figure out how to get access on my 2009 American Eagle porch (patio) light bulb? I do not see how it unsnaps from the fixture, I don't see a set screw, anyone have any advice? Thanks.

Look to see if there's a tiny notch at the top you can gently pry it out of the housing with a phillips head screwdriver. I say "gently" because when I tried to replace the bulb in our Bounder's light in 2011, the lens was so sun damaged it fell apart. Ended up replacing the entire fixture with a Smart Lite 1000.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

On my 07 you just gently squeez the top and bottom together while lifting from the bottom. There are two small tabs, one on top and one on bottom and as you squeez it disengages the bottom one.

That's how the lens on my Bounder came off as well.

It's in storage currently, I will be getting it out in a few weeks and will try again. My '99 came out that way, but this one is very stubborn. I'm starting to wonder if previous owner caulked it in, but I will look again. Thanks for your input!
