LED vanity light upgrade

Do you guys know how to remove the clear housing in the vanity mirror to exchange the lights to led? Theres no room or little slit to pop the cover off If you have, what are the led sizes?

that whole unit will pop out.... the whole unit is in a steel housing that is built into the headliner. just give her a tug and it will pop out. Then flip it over and you will have access to the bulb from underneath.

As did I, it looks like the vanitys are the same size as hatch/side mirror/and front markers. 168/194 bulbs

Thanks. One of mine on the passenger side I noticed has just burnt out. At 23k miles I could get it replaced free but I'll go brighter and whiter.
