Fridge light removal

Does anyone know how to remove the light on a Dometic, DM2882, refrigerator? Can't see any screws and don't want to break tabs. I am thinking about putting a couple of fans on the inside fridge fins and want easy access to 12 volt supply.

I ran wire down the drain tube. To the backside of the fridge. There's a 12v access there.

Thanks, I may have to do that. It looks like the light fixture is held on with plastic rivets and I don't want to drill those out.

I have a totally different fridge than the OP, but I did the same thing. On mine that was ultimately easier.

That's a great Idea, I did this using piggyback spade connectors. It is only on when the fridge is on. I used a very low wattage computer fan located on the middle rack and made a shroud to prevent covering it with items. I then added an outside cooling fan controlled by manual switch wired through a thermostatic switch mounted behind the fridge access grill. Very low wattage, low noise, and quite effective.

There are pics on Keystone forums under Lunge Motorsport profile pics.

As a test I pushed a wire through the drain without difficulty. I intend to fish the temperature sensor for a controller and the wiring for the small fan through the drain. Just waiting for some clips that I ordered. Thanks for the input.
