    Super easy... I'll try to explain.

    There is a "slit" in the bottom of the plastic enclosure. Just take a decent sized flathead screwdriver, stick it in there (Click here to enlarge), and slide the entire enclosure I believe to the right.
    You're not prying anything, just use the screwdriver as a handle basically. The enclosure should come loose and it should fall out (might take a little tug downward). There is a wire attached to it so be careful.
    Replace the bulb or the entire assembly if that's what your replacement is, then push the enclosure back in. Done!

    Hope that makes sense.

    its your metal tabs, if you pull the light out and look at the connectors, you will see the thin metal filiments, they need to be spread and properly aligned to line up and make contact inside the connector... take a look, you'll see what i mean. usually, lightly and gently spread them toward the outside edge, careful though, they are weak
