The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.

SOURCE: I recently bought a house
The reversing in a single phase AC motor is done by switching the flow of current thru the starting coil. For that to happen both ends of the coil must be accessible on the outside of the motor.
Unfortunately the motor in this fan doesn't have that so there is no way to install a reverse switch on it without extensive modifications on the motor: it will have to be opened, the starting coil identified, the captive end unsoldered from the main connector to which it is attached and extracted outside. From there the ends will have to be soldered on a special relay and wiring that would have to be inserted besides the usual wiring of the fan. From there a special command wire will have to be sent to the remote receiver board that you would have to insert it there also. To put it simply: the labor (which must be done by a pro) would cost more than a new fan.
So if you need a fan with reverse then just buy one: it will be way easier, faster and cheaper than to retrofit this one.
