You have to slide a flat blade (like a dull utility razor) up into the light lens which is farthest from the door. The end closest to you while staring up at it. When you slide up it releases a tab. Now you use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the light lens down out of mirror. Remove bulb by twisting it out of housing. Put in new bulb and reassemble. Good Luck!
