Surely the bulb comes out the back? I have no experience with this so I don't know but I would think the bulb comes out. Do you have a picture of the back?

Here is a pic of back, just not sure if these are sealed units or can be pulled apart
You will see a couple of screws on back plate

Have you tried taking the bracket off and taking the screws out?

The mounting plate comes off with a open end wrench and Allen wrench. Remove the screws that hold the chrome metal plate from housing. Careful since there is a rubber gasket between light housing and metal cover plate. If I remember correctly the bulb is held in place with a screw. Loosen the screw and bulb comes out. I replaced mine with sylvania silver star. They are bright.

I had similar to that - bulb is cemented in some type of ceramic type polymer - I ditched them and went with an LED lightbar -

IF you manage to get the old bulb out, here's a suggestion when installing the new one. Do NOT handle the bulb with your bare skin--wear a glove (cotton/cloth) or use a handkerchief. This is because most of these bulbs are quartz halogen and the oil that your skin leaves behind will shorten the life of the bulb--usually ends with shattering. FYI, same applies when changing a quartz halogen bulb at home.

Thanks for help guys, job done. After I was quoted $300 for a bulb from the MC dealer i went to an auto accy shop, and bought the bulb for $10, so i bought 2 and replaced them both today. Easy job and now i will stuff some sound filling into the tower cans
