For the Sea Gull Serenity 4 Light Pendant 69161BLE-962: It may be possible to change the bulbs just by reaching over the glass bowl. If not, here is how you remove the bowl. First you need to unscrew the finial at the very bottom of the fixture, you will probably need a second person to hold the bowl while you remove the finial. Once the finial has been unscrewed, remove the decorative cup, nut, washer and rubber washer from the downrod. The glass can now be removed. Note: There is a rubber washer and washer on the downrod on the inside of the glass, be careful not to lose these. Once the bulbs have been changed, put the bowl back on in reverse order. Here is a link to the Installation Instructions.
