Ceiling Leak

Last night we experienced a few drips of water from the light fixture near the front AC unit. Ours are installed in the wood ornamental trim on the ceiling.
Question how do we open the light fixture? I want to determine how much water got in the ceiling.
Tomorrow i will need to go up on the roof to find the leak in the caulking

Leak near the a/c

Since you mention a leak near the A/C , I did experienc the same in a peace arrow 2003 the previous onwer never did clean the inside filter under the a/c cealing cover.. So the ac was succing wather from the drain pan on the roof inside the a/c compartment, since my cealing was made of similie leather, we ended up with a big water pocket that dissapear eventualy.
Hope that help.

Was it or had it recently rained? If it from rain and is coming through the air conditioner there is no sealing to do on the roof. There are four long hex head screws that secure the air conditioner to the roof. Between the roof and the a/c is a closed cell foam gasket. If you have a leak at the a/c unit you can remove the interior cover for the a/c and see the four screws. Try tightening them slightly with the a/c running. If you tighten too much you will notice a change in noise and you know you've tightened just barely too much.
