Replacing Pentair Globrite lights

I have 4 globrites in my pool and 3 are out. I'm looking at installing them myself but have an issue. EVERY post/video/manual i can find on the install instructions call for pulling new cable. However, it appears I only have one cable coming from all 4 lights to my transformer box. In other words, the 4 lights are spliced together somewhere under my pool or cement that i don't have access to. There is no way for me to pull a new cable from any of the lights back to the box.

The question is then, is it an absolute must to pull a new cable for these lights? Do they have a connector on the back of the light that can be unplugged and plugged into the replacement light?

thanks in advance

Are you sure there's not a junction box at your equipment pad? From what I can tell, there's usually only one wire from the transformer to a junction box, and each light will have a run of wire to the junction box, where they are tied to the single wire going to the transformer.

Here is my equipment pad, with the transformer on the right, and the junction box on the left. There's 5 conduits on the bottom of my junction box (1 for the wires coming from the pool transformer and landscaping transformer, one for each of the 3 pool lights, and the last one leads out for my landscaping lights).
