Needs help

So I'm swapping out my dome/map lights with leds and I can't figure out how to get to them. Can anyone enlighten me on how to so this.

Also I have a sunroof so on my maplight I have my sunroof button if that makes a difference.

For the dome light then entire clear plastic covering pops off. Just stick a small flat head up in there and pry it out. For the map lights the entire surround plastic piece pops out, where the lights and button are.

Mods: GT-R exhaust, CRABs O3 w/FPU, 35% tint, 5000K HID lows/fogs, upper/lower recessed grilles, Racingline strut bar, concept darts, white LEDs everywhere

Thank you. I didn't feel like breaking anything today. I figured that's all it was but didn't want to chance it

I've had both out multiple times, have yet to break anything. Though my screw driver slipped once on the map lights plastic piece and made a scratch >_<.

Now do the actual lights twist out or do I just pull them out.

Moved to Appearance section. This section is for How-To guides only.

Also, in my sedan G6 the whole plastic piece that houses the bulb (or OnStar for some people) comes out so you don't run into the problem that reverttheclown had.

I don't have the map lights, but I'd like them. I just have the dome light. I think.
