Removing outside light cover

I need to change the bulb on one of the security lights outside. When I went to remove the cover it was very difficult, so I decided to inquire on the forum to make sure I was doing it right. I thought you pressed the cover up and it would come out of the frame, but since it was so hard I didn't want to crack it. Is that the correct way to remove it?

I just changed a couple of the bulbs on mine today. Had to use the business end of a small screwdriver to gently pry the lens cover off. There are 2 tabs on one side, and 1 tab on the other. I would say "top" & "bottom" instead of sides... but one had the 2 tabs on top, and on the other fixture the 2 tabs were on the bottom side. If they're like mine, they use either a common 1141 or 1156 automotive type lamp bulb that you can get any almost any auto parts store.

If it was like mine it would have blown off after picking it up on the initial drive. Surprisingly Dutchmen wont send me a replacement lens and CW says they need to order the whole assembly and cannot order the lens only. Shocking!
