bulb replacement help?

Does anyone out there know how to change the bulbs on an odyssea light fixture? i have the twin 250w mh, 4pc fluorescents, w 6 led moonlights type. i know you have to take the side panel off to slide out the glass covers to change the pc's, but im wondering how much farther i need to go to change the halides. im excited because im replacing the stock bulbs with phoenix 14k's which arrived today and the new lumatek adjustable e-ballasts arrive tomorrow. i would love to have the bulbs in when the ballasts get here. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do know that when you change out mh bulbs, don't touch the new bulb with your hands. I use a paper towel.

Getting new equipment is sooo fun! Like being a kid in a candy store, but we don't have to leave the house b/c the truck brings it to us!!!!!!!!!

I dont think you can really break anything, just be careful disassembling and remember where everything goes...
