Check out this thread, beginning with my post in this link, where I provide pics and details on what bulbs I used where.

I just got a butter knife with a microfiber wrapped around the end and slipped it between the lens and headliner and gently twisted it until it popped out a bit, then used my hands to remove. I've done this many times on many a car though so I have no problems doing it. It really isn't a big deal IMO, but everyone is different. If you feel comfortable doing it, it's not hard at all.

there should be a notch somewhere on the lens for you to pop it out

just use a butter knife as paradox mentioned and pop it open on the side that does not contain the clip holding it in

you should be able to see which side has the actual joint holding it in.

When you change the 2nd row reading lights do you remove the entire housing or does the little light cover just come off?

The lens cover pops out, then just pull the bulb out. It might take a couple of pulls to get it out.

This is the most ridiculous experience I've had with modifying a car. And I've done everything from putting a TV in the trunk of one car, to putting an Xbox 360 in the front of another, and LEDs and HID installs for days.
Yet I can't get proper fitting LEDs for the dome lights. What!

I ordered a bunch from SuperBrightLEDs, using their car finder. They suggested 194s for the dome light...which they are not. But I figured I was wrong and messed up something. Nope, their website says 194. AutoZone, CarID, and ModifiedLife, which I always rely on for bulb lists, all have it wrong. So I figured, let me go to the manual...the manual does not frigging list the bulb number. It literally has a dash (-) where the bulb number should be.

Someone on here or another forum, after much digging, said the right bulbs were BA9S types. So I order BA9S types from SuperBrightLEDs, whose website is screaming at me that these won't fit my car. I get them, right shape, should work. Nope, a tiny bit too small, they sit a little loose, and no light.

Can someone point me to an actual link for white LEDs that will work for our cars? Apparently I'm incapable of finding the right bulb...

And how does everyone have it wrong? I mean, it's definitely not 194 type. Just, so confused and frustrated with this experience. I now have all my lights as white LEDs, my HIDs and fogs done, and ugly yellow map lights still. Sigh.

Your help would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

This is what I used and it fit perfectly. I assume these are the lights in the front above the rear view mirror.
