Howdy,

So an odd question, anybody know how to change a passenger reading lightbulb? In my case it's a PA32/260 and one of the reading lights / swivel lights is burned out. From what I can tell looking at replacement assemblies and my own unit, there are no easily accessible screws to make the bulb come out. I tried turning the swivel end as well with no luck. This seems kind of stupid, but maybe somebody can help?

Picture attached with the light I'm trying to replace circled in red.

I believe the solution is to hold the body of the lamp with soft tooth pliers and turn the lens off by unscrewing it.
Let me check with an interior guru I know.

Fixed it. I dropped the ceiling panel with removal of 15 screws.
