    Default Front Courtesy Light Change

    Anyone know how take the plastic cover off the front courtesy and map reading lights without scratching the plastic around it with a screwdriver?

    When I did it in my Vectra it ended up with a gouge mark on each side from the screwdriver, as it already had small ones from the previous owner.

    Was wondering if there's a way of doing it without damaging the plastic as my Signum's unit doesn't have any scratches?

    Are you taking about the opaque part , so you can replace the bulbs ? If so press the map reading lights on and then use your fingers to apply a small bit of pressure and it will pop out. No tools need for this.
