Can I replace the light bulbs without removing the
Yes, it is possible to replace the light bulbs without removing the panel that surrounds the two bulbs. The problem is that those bulbs get slippery because of cooking oil splatters.
I recommend that you use a paper towel and some window cleaner (aka: Windex) Spray the towel and clean the bulb. Let each dry and turn the bulb to loosen it out. Use the moist paper towel to help turn is needed.
Be so careful to not break the bulb as you remove it. Good Luck!

Our zephyr vent hood fan turns itself on, about two or three times a week. Often late at night, waking us up. What can we do to fix this?
I am completely guessing but assume it uses electronic switching?
A standard or old sort of cooker hood use mechanical switches, which would have to be seriously faulty to switch themselves on, though water ingress from condensation entering a switch can over time cause a carbonised track to form that could when damp carry enough current to run a low powered motor or alternatively blow the fuse/trip the RCD if the track is a ground path.
With electronic switching there are usually buttons mounted on a circuit board and in order to produce compact dimensions the tracks are very close together. The buttons usually need only make a momentary contact for a very small current to flow and the brain to switch on the motor.
A tiny drop of water entering this unit can cause mayhem...

I would try a hand steamer, it definitely won't affect the stainless and I'm assuming you have a large glass, stainless or tile cplashback. Hope this helps
