What brand is the Truck cap? but yes generally if there are no screws in the lens front or back then there is usually a very small slot someplace on the edge of the lens you should be able to fit a small flat blade screw driver into and pop the lens. If the lens is surrounded by a rubber gasket on the outside the gasket usually has to be pried back before the lens comes out
Look at the clear lens. You will see a small slot on one side. Use a small screw driver and push it in and pop the lens off. Then you will see the screw/s to get the backing off, if you need to go that far.
Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.
Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.
There are a few different models, but the general procedure is the same. There should be Phillips screws holding in the plastic lens cover which are accessible from the outside of the vehicle. Unscrew these, and the lens should pop out to give you access to the rear. The wires to the bulb socket will come out with the lens. With the lens removed, the bulb socket is usually attached to the back with a half-turn twist. So, untwist the bulb socket and remove the bulb and socket from the lens. Now, push down and twist the bulb to the left in a simultaneous motion and the bulbe should pop out. You'll probably have some grease on the bottom of the bulb, which is dielectric grease to keep the contacts from oxidizing.
Take the bulb to your retailer and match the number on the brass base of the bulb to a new one. Installation is just the reverse of the removal.
Incidentally, some car and truck models have an alternate arrangement where you remove the bulb socket from inside the engine compartment (or trunk) and removal of the lens isn't necessary. If you don't see screws accessible from the outside of the lens, then pop the hood and see if you can reach your hand inside to where the bulb socket attaches to the lens.
One comment - having just replaced a bulb. After you remove the two screws - the assemby will be loose, but doesn't just slide back. There is a plastic pressure fitting that will hold the assembly in place. Applying force to pull the assembly out caused me to crack the plastic panel where the two screws go. So don't do that! I found that applying a bit of pressure - via a flat tip screwdriver - between the assembly and the car body "popped" the plastic pressure fitting and allowed me to change the bulb. I was applying pressure to drive the assembly toward the rear of the car(and slightly up). Reassembly was just a matter of 1) gluing the cracked plastic back in place 2) aligning the white plastic pressure fitting into its receiver and 3) replacing the screws and covers. Hope this was helpful
