Since it's a two piece cover.... I'd imagine the plastic lens needs to be removed first.
The lens may unsnap or turn slightly to separate from metal canopy.

If you can't get the lens to separate from the canopy then it must be a pull-down canopy. You'll have to carefully use a knife to score between the canopy and the caulk.
