    The fixture is removed by sliding it from left to right if I remember correctly. There is a small slot on the clear lens that makes it easier to slide with a flat blade screwdriver.

    Just be careful. It is held in by tabs. One of my tabs broke off on its own. Had to have it replaced under warranty. My dealer had to order it as they don't keep them in stock. If you're still under warranty, I would let a dealer fool with it.

    I used a plastic trim puller to push, to avoid scratching. Press the left side in to the right, then pull down from the left. Picture two little tabs that rest above the opening, the right one being flexible. It's easy.
