Removing light covers

I can get those square light covers off easily but I can't figure out how to get the long covers off. They are approximately 4 x 24 inches.

Thanks

Mine just squeze from both sides. Besides they sell them when you break them. Go for it!

Leave the light on for a few minutes to warm up the lens before removing. A hair dryer will also help but you must use it on a low setting being carfeul not to warp the lens.
Bend the lens in gently and it will come out.
If it is stubborn you can carefully use a butter knife to pry an end out. If it is warm it should come out and not crack.
I removed then lenses in my 20 year old Airstream with no problem using this method.
I washed them iwith dish soap, replaced any bad bulbs and they look great.
