    Yes, easiest way it to remove the blanking plate/sunglass holder or the interior sensor part, then push the cover down.

    Yeah, take the sunglass holder out, then you should be able to see the clear lense clips, just push them down and it'll pop off...

    I find this the easiest way as its all by hand, saves marking any of the interior using keys or small screw drivers...

    You'll be ok then, i've tried a few types and the normal style shine a bright 2p sized light straight down on the lens and have a weird light spread. flat or inverted are better and closer to a real bulb for spread
