You will need a flat-edged screwdriver to pry up the white/opaque plastic diffuser that covers the light - the bulb is in a socket underneath it.
Pry up an edge of the diffuser with the screwdriver and you should be able to see that it's held on with 4 tabs - two on the top and two on the bottom. Push the tabs in on either the top or bottom and the cover should pop out easily.
