    With great care, patience and preferably using someone with slim finger !
    I lost one bulb in the lens compartment and it's still there a year on !

    There has been a post about how carefully to do this.

    With regards to your question. basically as you have to manoever the plastic trim to an angle in order to take the bulb out. Ideally if we could remove the trim completely the bulb would be on the back of it and then easy to replace the bulb, but ....if only....
