How the hell do you remove these map lights from the roof. I'm tyring to change out the bulbs and all I'm able to do is slide them forward and have one side pop out. I tried pulling on them at this point and they really dont seem to want to come out. I'm afraid if I pull any harder, I'll wind up breaking them. I even tried pushing on what appeared to be a small tab,...still no luck. Any ideas? :???:

place a small flat head screw driver under the center of the plastic and pry slowly upwards. Should just pop out.

cover the tip or the edge of the map light with some cloth so as not to damage the headliner and light fixture.

--Do you pry the asmbly while its flush against the headliner or after you slide it forward and partially out?
