Replacing the bulb is a little complexImage0011.jpgThe small solder lumps need unsoldering to separate the green circuit board from the white board the bulb will then drop out after unscrewing.

I don’t know how to solder with this detail. But it looks like you could cut out that corner of the white plastic with a Dremel, then remove the bulb and holder out the back. Replace, and the green board will hold it in.
