Hey RC
Trying to replace the halide bulbs on a 48" Aqualight retrofit. I can't get the glass shields off to get behind them and remove the bulb. I see there are pegs or screws holding the glass in. It looks like that would be the way to remove them but I can't get them to budge. I don't want to break anything, and thought I'd ask RC before doing so.

I have also called around and I am getting completely different answers.

You have to remove the piece of glass thats on the metal brackets. Then it should be a piece of cake. You won't be able to do it unless you remove the glass.

I had to take the screws out to take out the metal brackets/glass.

I ended up just putting some force into it.. I was afraid to break it but everything came out great. If you ever have a problem, don't ever even waste time trying to get in touch with Coralife tech support!
