Cleaning entrance light

We have a 2013 3100RL. The entrance light has collected flies over the years and needs to be cleaned. I have tried several ways to take it apart to no avail. Hoping someone out there has the same light fixture and figured out how to clean it. Sorry, photo was upright when I loaded it. Couldn't figure out how to edit to rotate. I don't post very often. All help appreciated.

I just use the vacuum hose without any attachment and stick it down into the light. Works well enough to get the bugs out. I've never figured out how to remove the glass. Was quite a project to change the bulbs out to LEDs.

Agree. Have switched all 12v lights to LED. This fixture was definitely a challenge. I'll try the vacuum hose sans attachment. Thanks

Tried using the vacuum hose without an attachment. Can't get it over the globe to get in to suck the little buggers out. Also tried the long flexible wand that came with our built-in vacuum. Didn't work either!

Another fine example of really, really stupid design engineering. Who ever designed this crap obviously never had to change a light bulb in one or clean one.
