Unplug the opener from the wall socket. Then remove the light lens and that end panel. It looks like on this one that you may need to move the control board to access the back of the light socket. Then there is a snap that holds the socket in place. Push the tab and the socket will push away from the opener unit. Unplug the 2 wires to the socket and then connect them to the new socket and snap it in place. Put everything back and you should be back in business.
