The back cover is removed by turning it anticlockwise (I think) slightly then just lift it off. It is not on a thread. Once inside, unplug the plug on the back of the globe, the globe is clipped in with a small piece of wire. once unclipped it will just lift out.

can be a bit fiddly but it is not that difficult to do. Recomended not to attempt it while the engine is warm, and in the middle of the night without a torch. tho of course, thats when they always go...

took me about 10 seconds, and i did it in the middle of the night with a torch!

its pretty easy - once you have the circular thing on the back of the thing off the thing will be pretty mush self explanitory. just put the thing in the thing and make sure it lines up with the top of the thing. I keep a spare thing in the glovebox now because i do a lot of things. so if i ever need the thing, i know its in the thing
