Look in the middle at the bottom. There should be a slot next to the trailer to pop off the cover. A flat blade screw driver should work.

The lens will pop out, and removing the entire fixture is not needed.

I looked at the bottom but didn't see anything obvious, that's why i asked about removing the sealant.

There is a tab on the lens in the middle on the bottom and two tabs on the top of the lens evenly spaced. A small flathead screwdriver between the lens and the base, pry inward and voila.

Keep in mind that someone at the factory might have installed the porch light upside down. That would put the one tab at the top and the two indented tabs at the bottom, so if you don't see a single tab on the bottom, don't forget to check for a single tab on the top.....

It might have been installed upside down by the same guy who built a house and threw half the nails away because they were pointy on the wrong end.
