Outdoor sensor light not working

Hi, I have an outdoor sensor light from a property I purchased a couple years ago. It was still working a while ago, but recently stopped. Perhaps the light bulb burnt out, as I could still see the sensor light glowing whenever someone is nearby. It looks something like the image attached. Are the light bulbs replaceable for these types of outdoor sensor lights or would I have to take the entire thing off and replace with a new light? I have no idea how to replace the bulb.

Those white covers should unscrew off the fixture.
Those look like bipin bulbs. The fixtures are pretty small so the bulbs would need to be low wattage. Possibly 10-20 watts. Look for a bulb wattage on the fixture or old bulbs.

Just an example
