Interior ceiling LED replacement

I have one light over the stairs that has stopped burning. I've unscrewed the glass cover and removed the 3 phillips head screws, but don't see a way to remove the LED bulb. I've pulled down on the fixture and it seems to have springs keeping it snug against the ceiling which makes me cautious about pulling too hard on it. Does anyone know the correct way to replace this LED?

Would need a new fixture, it's $14.00 from Redwood. Reuse the old dome. Just pull it will come out but watch your fingers the springs bite. Lol. The fixture is connected with wire nuts it took longer to type this than to change the fixture once you get the right one. Oh and buy some spares as well..

I find it interesting that you are already burning out your LED lights. That seems really premature for a LED light. I'm a couple of years into our LED lights and have traveled some very rough roads as well, and have not had a light fail.

I agree, we have fulltimed in our 38FL for almost a year now and traveled some pretty rough roads and have not had any problems with the ceiling lights, but it sure would be nice to have a couple of replacement spares of both sizes in our inventory.
Will see if I can purchase a couple of each size at the Rally since we plan on keeping our baby for a few years of fulltiime use.
Oh yea, for everything a fulltimer buys, two have to go !!!

We're in our rig about a year and a half. With a few dozen of these lights having one go out prematurely didn't seem like a need for concern. I've only had one go out but other "may" follow and spares were ordered. It took minutes to swap out and buying them on the road was much more money and didn't match. I don't think its cause for concern but a spare is nice to have.

I have not looked at our I thought you could replace the bulb and did not have to replace the whole unit. I will have to look at one and see.
