If there is no door over the bulb that can be removed by a screw or otherwise, then the cover has to be removed. DANGER!!! ALWAYS UN-PLUG BEFORE ATTEMPTING REPAIRS!!

The light bulb assembly (bulb and socket are all one piece) is part number WB36X951.
It is located on the air duct assembly where the door switches are mounted.
You can see an exploded view diagram here.
You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb assembly.
Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.
See these links before proceeding:
The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.
Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.
If you're not able to find the bulb assembly at your local appliance parts store, you can order one here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

To replace the light you will first have to remove the outer shell.
To do this
(1). Remove all of the screws on the back of the microwave that hold on the shell
(2) Remove the screws that are on the bottom.
(3) now the shell should slide off towards the back of the microvave.
Note : this may take a little bit of pressure to get it off ok?
(4) Once the cover is off look towards the fromt of the microwave and
you will see the bulb. now just replace the bulb and reinsert the cover and the screws and you are all done ok? pretty easy ha/
