Default How to remove the luggage compartment light covers?

hi all

I've gone through the process of replacing all my passenger compartment bulbs on my 07 RX350 with LEDs.

Now I'd like to do the 3 in the boot. Can someone please advise me how to remove the covers off these particular lights?

They look so fragile that I don't want to snap the lens just by using a screwdriver in the wrong place!

thanks

Try the following video:

You can feel free to turn off the annoying soundtrack. There is no voice commentary.

Thank you! That's a brilliant video....except that it tempts me to change even more bulbs!



It looks like I have to remove the whole rear inner bootlid panel to access the boot light. Looks like it shouldn't be too hard though.

thanks again

cheers

I would think that you would not have to do such. Check to see if the cover comes off like the others.

RX330inFL you didn't like the music??? lol. Anyway at 6:40
he only change the center map lights and not the two on each side. I've changed all three.

I've changed the two on the sides with BA9s 5 SMD 5050 CANBUS 5000K Super White LED bulb from http://www.luceprodukt.com/ and they are bright and high quality.
