    Default interior light cover

    I am trying to change a bulb in the front roof light cluster (the one in front of the sunglasses holder). but i cant work out how to get the clear plastic cover off, after removing the very front mic cover trim. i dont want to force it incase it breaks... anyone know the secret?

    sorry if this is answered somewhere else, i cant find it if it is

    You'll have to use a small flatblade screwdriver to prise it off, and you can only do it at the end where the mic cover / alarm sensors are. Just go gentle because as you say, you don't want to damage it. It is tight, but once you release it, it's ok. You have to release it at both corners rather than the middle as this is where the clips are! If you have any problems, I can post a picture of it removed so you can see...

    The cover just prises off, and the bulbs just pull out. Simple to do, just take your time!!

    Or pull the interior sensor out 1st by hand, push against the front part and pull out and down towards the windscreen... then push the light cover clip from behind. you might scratch it with a screwdriver if not careful
