On each, there are two round plastic covers, like the tops of jars. Unscrew (about 1/2 turn) the one behind the burnt out bulb. Pull the wiring clip off the bulb. It's just a friction fit, so pull it straight back. The bulb itself is held in by a metal clip. Look closely and you'll see it fits into a notch on the bulb holder. Press in on the clip and push it to the side. The bulb is now loose. Reverse the process to install the new bulb. Be careful not to toch the quartz part with your fingers or you'll shorten the life of the bulb.
