How to remove fixture lens

Hi all, the LED fixtures in my 2015 unit all are the rectangular, rounded fixtures. I can not figure out how to remove a lens to change a bulb. The fixture above the kitchen sink needs a new bulb.

I'll snap a pic on my way out of the house in a bit.

Thanks in advance.

If they are anything like the round ones, just pry it out gently with a small flat blade screwdriver.

Barely needs a screwdriver. Pinch the lens 1/4 the way back from each end. There are 4 small catches.


If they are the string of LED's they are not easily re-bulbed.

If it's like these, pinch either side of the lens, pull forward about 1/2" to release the catches, then pull straight down.

They may not have "bulbs". it maybe just diodes that can't be replaced

Thanks guys.

Here's a pic



As you can see, I've tried prying with small screwdriver only to manage deforming the housing.

After taking my pics, I followed mikes suggestion.

Success!

Here's what she looks like:




Here's the lens... It's the small one, so evidently only two catches:


All it took was to squeeze both sides of the lens at the centerline/centerline

Thanks to all. Now I'm looking for a replacement "bulb" (which appears to be an array of diodes.)

Of course after all that...

It looks like I'll need to replace the entire fixture anyways.





Because what don't we see? Answer: Any sort of quick connect.

Only hard wired.

You might want to go back to the older style fixtures like my pic above. Very easy to put replaceable LED bulbs in them as you can see.


The fixture shown is a double, but they come in singles as well.

Yep... agreed. My old unit had those classic fixtures, although I never converted to LED like you have.

Thanks!
