Thanks sailingdog. Any idea how you get the bulb out? I tried the push and rotate method, but I think I'm supposed to release it--maybe with a screwdriver on the side? Not sure if you're familiar with this fixture or not (new to me).

Also, do you think Defender would have the parts and grease? Just asking because my boat's not far from there.
