I did it when one of my lights died... It's not too hard. Just take your time.

On the center vent, I had to wedge the butter knives in the top and bottom of the left side, loosen it up a bit and repeat on the right side. There is something attached to the back of it with some adhesive tape, so it'll take a bit of force to pull it and the dash apart but just go slow and you'll be okay.

When I did mine, I left some marks/small gouges the edge of the dash that borders on the vents and thought that I had permanently damaged it. The next day, the marks/small gouges were gone. Tough stuff, our dash boards.

lights out

I used a paper clip to get in behind the socket, I just kept pushing and pushing and turning until it finally release. Takes some effort.
