    Depends on the fixture. You will need to remove the reflector and lights, then you will need to push in the tabs on the end caps so it will slide out of the reflector. You will most likely need to cut the wires to get them free of the end cap and then strip a half inch piece of insulation from the ends of the wires and then plug the wires into the end caps and reverse the unintall process.
