i actually made this a long time ago. Just thought since people are buying leds i figure i'd show how to change the maplight

step 1: pull clear plastic off closest to the front of the car



step 2: once pulled all the way out find 4 clips holding the clear plastic piece in place





step 3: once plastic piece is removed the problem is getting the bulbs out. as you've probably already seen they're a pain to grab. so, what I DID (there could be other ways but i found this easier) was bend the metal surrounding the bulbs in order to reach in and grab them easily with my fingers and pull out.



step 4: replacing the bulbs. it doesn't really matter how you put them back in. i personally put the metal back in its place and then put the bulb in. but whatever works for you is fine.

finally: reverse all the steps to take the map light out and you could get a result like this



I really like how they look. They shine bright enough at night to which it isn't overbearing. I'll be sure to put pictures up of the night time later.
