    • I wasn't super careful about the diode matrix here because I was going to recycle it anyway, but if you're trying to repair one of these, I'd advise either to put a towel or something under the light or to wait on taking the lens cover off.

  3. Using the same P2 screwdriver as before, you can open up the light by removing the screws recessed within the plastic.  Once those are removed, you can carefully lift the top off and hang the top off the side of the light. Next, you will want to unplug the fan from the driver board and remove all the screws from said driver.  They are also P2. Finally, you can lift the driver away from the plastic and either cut or desolder the wires going to the socket.
