Surface mount puck lights

2008 23D International.
I can't figure out how to remove a under cabinet surface mount puck light .
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have searched the forums with no meaningful hits.
Thanks in advance

Can you post a photo? I have puck lights in my new to us 06 Safari S.E. ceiling lights and struggled with the same thing. I ended up using the sharp edge of a box cutter to grab the outer edge of the inner ring and pull away from the bezel. I’ve heard of people using fingernails to do the same. Mine were not strong enough. The razor edge digs into the surface at the outer bezel making marks invisible.

This is what I am struggling with.
From my experience a box cutter is the answer to etting the lens out to change bulbs.
Several YouTube videos available.
I am trying to remove the complete surface mount puck.

Pick light removal

We have a 2016 19’ Bambi and I was just doing the same job today. Our galley light right above the sink went out on our latest trip. This partylight is controlled by a light switch to the right of the sink. I first removed the lense by using a small pun knife blade between the seam at the edge of the chrome lense ring. Once I started it down I used a very small screwdriver to pry it off. That exposed the led light which had to be removed by taking out 2 tiny Phillips head scenes ( careful don’t drop!) Then you can pull down the led light about an inch ( because that light is hardwired over to a switch in my case I didn’t take it any further, I’ll let AS deal with it!) when I pulled the led light out of the way I had access to the 2 Phillips head screws that held the entire assembly to the cabinet. Remove those and you’ve got it! I’ll try posting some pics ( never tried before!?) Hope this helps.Note- if you zoom in on the middle photo you can see one of the Phillips head screws that holds the outermost ring to the cabinet. )

This is a little strange; I just returned from the storage garage today trying to do the same thing without success. then opened up Airforums to research and saw this post!

I am considering replacing the puck lights over the dining table with IMTRA fixtures.

Thanks!

Pucks 2005, 2006? Versus newer.

I had an 05 Safari with puck lights set up for halon lights. I do not remember whether they went to LED in 06 or later. The fixtures are slightly different. The old ones could be converted to LED. The newer ones, just replace the whole light. Removing the older style should still be similar to what the pictures of the new ones show.

PS: If you still have Halons they are HOT burning, expensive to run and replace and burn out quickly. You'll be much happier with warm white LEDs.

My 07 International CCD had blinding bright and hot halogen bulbs.

Easy swap-out to warm white LEDS from LED4RV website. They give a much nicer light and save a lot of battery power.

It took a bit or research to find the right ones. I replaced all the puck lights, the reading lights, the porch light, and both the bath and wardrobe lights.

Only thing left is the range hood and the outside running lights.

Thanks Snakeater I think you hit the jackpot.
I will give it a try next time I visit the storage spot.
Thanks for taking the time to post pictures.
I was halfway there, but gave up too soon
