These are by far the hardest lights to replace without breaking something. You will need to remove the lens cover gently and slowly. Then use whatever you want to remove the bad bulb. It's kinda like playing that game Operation.

For all your bulb needs try here www.sylvania.com

Carbon got them at vleds.

You can also get them at superbrightleds:

Another option:

Here it is as an interior maplight/domelight kit, but it's a bit pricey:

And you can use the Sylvania site that roy365 suggested for the bulb numbers.

I tried poping mine out. Interesting that the video starts with the lens being easily removed. Mine was not that easy and I removed the entire console to prevent breaking the lens. Good luck which ever way you decide to go. :ftard:

Yeah, I couldn't help but notice that also.....and on the re-insert, it's backwards, not reversed???? With the tapered end going up and over to the side, first, to allow for the flat lip to slide up and in.....

I watched the video, it is not really clear on how to remove the map light covers, so the map light covers need to the pried out from the center or from the ends?

That video took a LOT of shortcuts or they have very weak connectors. My front map lights were tricky to remove and a PITA to put back in. I thought for sure I was going to break them.
