If it is the yellow floating lantern you have to remove the black plastic stub on the underside of the reflector using needlenose pliers to wiggle and slightly pull until it releases and the bulb will come out.

How to change batteries in A Eveready FAB4DCM

had a quick look online and found this is a museum piece.
Called a Dolphin torch, I remember these from the '80s and had to replace the batteries too often to ever want to do it again.
The front unlocks by rotating 1/4 turn. The batteries are a 6V sealed lead acid cell and now cost more than a new modern torch with a Li-ion cell. You will need a 6V charger if the battery can be recharged and unlikely if its old and discharged for long time.

How to fix the switch on eveready lantern flashlight

The switch in the lantern is a press fit switch so you will destroy it when you remove it. Remove the lense and retainer ring. Remove the battery. With a pair of pliers, preferably channel lock water pump pliers crush the switch into small piece and discard. Trail Tech makes the exact water resistant switch model 040-ls-b and you can get it at Amazon or on eBay . The switch runs around $6.25 + $4.00 shipping

Inside the case of the light, there will be 1 wire with a tapered notched connector. Take the connector with the low end of the taper and push it into the negative (-) spring (in between the coils ) of the battery.

I have bought a new 6volt battery for my dolphin but can't work out how to replace it.

The bezel (the circular portion on the front of the flashlight that holds the bulb and lens) will unscrew. The old battery should slide right out.

Hope this helps.
