Caravel bathroom cabinet light

My Caravel has a medicine cabinet in the bathroom over the sink. It has a light in it, with a three way switch. Looks like two bulbs in there. Does anyone know how to open this up and replace the bulbs, or what kind of bulbs it uses? The plastic is fairly brittle so I didn't want to risk breaking anything until I had an idea of what I was doing.

it is actually very easy. Unscrew the on/off knob then unscrew the retaining nut. I think they are #97 but do not quote me on that part.

I think the cover is actually fiberglass. There is a pattern that you cannot see when the light is on.

Yes, I think you are right about it being fiberglass, I can see the pattern with it off. Thank you very much! Mine has two bulbs in it, one 1156, one 1141. Here is a picture in case anyone ever wonders

I suspect the 1157 was a 'this is all I got" fix…
