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.

There are four clips holding the dome cover together. Unclip the two that I highlighted using the edge of the knife. Shouldn't take too much force to unclip it from the socket. Once you detach the two clip, it should come down easily.

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?
