Re: Remove end cover to access changing bulb and cleaning...
There's actually a light-bulb changer available from Pfaff (at least it
used to be available). Your Pfaff dealer should be able to get one for
you. Makes it a breeze to change lightbulbs.
However... if it is no longer available or your dealer can't get it,
you can remove the side cover - raise the handle and look down inside
the machine BEHIND the left side of the handle. You should be able to
look down inside the machine and see the top of a screw and fit a
screwdriver into the space to loosen the cover. Just make sure when
you put the cover back on that you tighten the screw down tightly -
don't want it falling off while you're sewing!

I can locate no information on your particular machine--even whether it is a serger or sewing machine.
However, sometimes the bulbs are accessible from below where the bulb is located. In some cases, rubber fingers, rubber garden gloves, or a tool will help provide the grip needed to grasp the bulb to remove it.
remove the end cover ( screw at the back and hinge out or any other method of removing the end cover
that will reveal the bulb holder on some machines it is necessary to undo the screws holding the holder so that access to the bulb is allowed
make sure that the power is off and disconnected at the power point
the bulb will be most probably be screw it type but some are baynot type ( press in and 1/4 turn
only use the correct bulb in replacing as the wrong bulb will cause the holder to burn from the heat
Most machines have a screw on the end or back that holds the end cap on that covers the bulb and mechanical parts. Sometimes they are hinged too. If the bulb is underneath in the middle then that may take a little bit more to get at it. I agree with Matty W too that Singer is really good at helping with fixing and replacing the bulb or other small fixes. I have done live one on one chats with them and they are very knowledgeable and patient. Good luck.
If you still have original Acessories there should have been a grey or brown cone shaped rubber gripper that could be slid up on bulb to assist in turning it If not remove the side cover, then back cover to access the bulb. Some 1008's have push in bulb others screw in so be careful not to break bulb as you remove it
push in bulbs must be pushe in and rotated 45 degrees counter clockwise to remove. Of course screw in bulbs just rotated counter clockwise to remove
Access may be a little awkward...remove side cover to gain space. Either push and twist (bayonet) or unscrew anticlockwise. Take to the dealer for replacement and they will likely do and show for no extra fee !!
on the left hand side of the sewing machine is the lamp cover door( face plate)
some have a hinge on the back & they just pull open
others have a hidden screw(there a tab you have to remove with a screw driver) then just unscrew the screw & take off the face plate & change the bulb
don't loose the tab or the screw
You my be able to change the light bulb without one. On some versions of the Pfaff 7570, you can remove the left end of the machine to access the bulb socket: remove the top cover that has all the designs pictured on it. Lift the carrying handle. Immediately behind the handle is a hole about 3mm in diameter. Down in that hole, probably too far down to see, there is a phillips head screw. Drop a Phillips head screwdriver into the hole, set it into the screw head and unscrew that screw. This will loosen the left end cap. Pull toward the left to remove this piece and you can access the bulb and socket.
Lift top cover. remove top cover (flat springs on each end of cover - move one with your finger and top will come off. Lift handle. Look to right of handle end over the head. There is a screw there. LOOSEN screw and front cover will slide away from head. Bunch up a paper towel or napkin and press into broken bulb socket and turn same counter clockwise to get bulb socket out. Good Luck!
Looks like you need a new bulb. This machine takes a bayonet style bulb, part number 2PCW is the generic one but you can pay more for a frosted one ($2-$4). To replace you need to remove the lamp cover. Depending on the age of your machine you may either need a phillips or #25 star (torx) driver. The screw is hard to find, it lift the handle up and look just to the rear of it on the left side, there should be a small square hole. The screw is under it. Alternately there is another, smaller hole just to the rear of the first one. You can take your seam guide (or a coat hanger) insert it and push down about 1", the lamp fixture is spring loaded and the end of the bulb will appear below while you push down. While holding down on the spring, push up on the bulb and turn to the left and it should pop out. (note some early models do not have the access hole to the screw, in this case you need to remove the top tray insert, 2 very small phillips screws, then you can see the lamp cover screw).
As to the battery problem, there is a cover on the bottom of the machine that you can pry off. There are 2 AA batteries inside. Remove and replace, you may need to clean the contacts if any corrosion is seen.
