***** ***** :

Here is a link to the installation instructions

***** ***** :

It shows you how to strip it down and mount it - just reverse this;

***** ***** :

Page 2 shows a screwed on cover to access the lamps for replacement

***** ***** :

20W max for the replacement

***** ***** :

Make sure the power is off also

Customer:

Hi, I saw that on the Elica site, but it doesn't show how to remove the glass.

***** ***** :

Do you want to remove the glass to get to the lights?

***** ***** :

The glass is between the lights?

***** ***** :

According to the picture I have, it is the filter in the centre, 4 lights outside of this and they have screw on glass caps

Customer:

Sorry, I need to replace the glass as well as the light bezels.

***** ***** :

Not enough information on the drawing I have, but I would assume that it is screwed from behind once you have taken the filter out

***** ***** :

Have you found somewhere to get the glass from?

Customer:

I have a replacement glass, but Elica can't give me any info on how to fit it!

***** ***** :

I would start by stripping out all the parts as detailed in the instructions and then look behind for the clips or screws

***** ***** :

I take it the glass has no holes or stuck on clips on the rear?

Customer:

Not that I can see. The glass and metal light surround are now loose, but I can't push the metal surround up to give me access to the back of the lights, nor can I drop the unit as a whole.

***** ***** :

I would have though each light would have a connector on its supply and with the two off (usually a screw from behind near the wire hole) you should be able to expose a clip or fixxing near each corner

***** ***** :

They should be simple just like the appliance techs :-)

Customer:

Success! Just suction between the rubber seal separating the metal light housing from the glass. Thanks for your help.

***** ***** :

No problem - well done

***** ***** :

Glad I could help in some way....
