You replace bulbs from the back side, in other words from the engine compartment. No need to take off the lens, in fact I believe its heat sealed to the rest of the assembly.

With that said please fill out your profile, it does help.

It's what's shown to the left of your post. Check out mine, showes my rides, loose location where I live, those are the 2 most important. Example for location--Poster askes why engine doesn't heat up, might make a difference if he lives in Alaska and it January, or if he lives in Iraq and it July.
