anyone been able to get the covers off the interior lights without breaking them? especially the front one that is pretty much U shaped? looking for a DIY on the cover removals

i wan't to upgrade all the bulbs to LED, but i'm not seeing the easy cover removal that i'm used too with this vehicle.

Did all my interior few weeks ago. For the map light cover. I started gently prying the rear corner of the U shape and work toward the front. The key is to use a thin blade flat head screw driver.

Did the same but didn't use a screwdriver or razorblade... just an old credit card. Then to remove the bulbs used a hose to grip the bulb and pull them out. I've got big fingers, I guess.

Got 10 from eBay for $10.58. I used the latex glove wrapped around needle nose pliers to pull the bulbs out.
