Dome light bulb change.... I was going for the two screw whole assy removal method But the aft end didn't want to pull out... So I used a six inch rule (a very flat thin six inch ruler) and popped down the fwd edges, no dents or scuffs.

Flat head won't work without scratching up the plastic and it will look like crap in the end. My method works the best and no screw driver needed. Go to walmart and buy a suction cup with hooks where you can hang small items on the mirror. Use that to pull the dome cover. Just one strong yank it will come off.

Next, don't twist on the light bulb. Simply pull straight down.

Hope this helps.
Anybody try this on a '10 or '11 with the two lens covers because of the Enform button?

2.) Has anybody ordered the LED boards from nigel and are they really as bright as some people say they are?

3.) if they are really that bright do I need two in the rear dome or is one enough? ( PS I plan on putting two in the rear and 3 in the Front but if i only need one in the back then i can use the xtra for the trunk)

4.) Where in the front & rear dome light housing did you stick the board two I wouldn't think it would be safe to stick some thing to the connectors that hang dwn but if there is no danger y not.

5.) can those led boards be used for the door courtsey and the mirrors again where and how would i stick them too.


Thankyou & please help really need help with these problems want to get it all done within the next couple of days


Dome and Map lights. Only one light works and i'm trying to trouble shoot the problem. Heeeeelp. 2006 GS300.<br/>
