Default ‘37 Taillight Lense Removal

Newly acquired car has 37 taillights. One needs new bulb. No screw on lense ring, don’t want to ruin any of the pieces. Question, does the lense and ring have internal clips hold in place requiring little “prying” to remove or is there other means to remove to be able to replace bulb??

Appreciate and support/guidance.

Thanks
Ryan

Remove the screw on top of the housing and the lens and its bezel/rim will come free....

As I recall there is a screw on the bottom painted portion of the housing that releases it.
