Hey, welp I ordered some LED bulbs for my interior lights...dome, side doors, map lights, visors, etc. I figured out how to open the map and door lights, but how can i take out the bulbs? THe side door lights is always ondo i have to disc. the batt? Also do i twist/turn it in a certain direction? As for the dome light, I have a problem getting that one off because I cant find the lil crease to pry it open. If anyone can help, that would be most helpful.

BTW, i searched this topic, there was no DIY guide of any sort.

you can leave the battery connected if you wish to take out the door lights. as for the dome light, just use a smaller flat tip screwdriver, i just tested it just now, pry it towards the back of the car about 1/4 inch from the side. if you go 1/2 inch, you may break the tab on the cover.

the little crease to pry out is on right where the swith is on the doom light. Door lights dont twist, they are wedge base so you should just pull them out. Map light and doom light are the same, make sure you turn them off before installing or uninstalling the doom/map light bulbs or you might blow the fuse.

Did you say Visor? cuz I don't think those are changeable. At least not plug and play.

doors you just pull it straight out and it comes out very easily ...and for the LED bulb its polerize so when you plug it in and it doesn't light up take the bulb out and switch it around

Incorrect.

The bulbs are a 1.1W glass-cylinder type. I don't know the exact p/n, but just pull it out and look. It should take you no more than 1 minute with a small screwdriver to get it out.
