    I'm trying to figure out the same thing. Got the cover/lens off but do I just grab the bulb and pull it straight out? I tried gently as it's a small bulb and hard to grip. Tried wiggling it too just they seem to be in there pretty good.

    What about the rear passenger lights? How do you get the cover off? One side is the push in and the other side is the light part. Which side do you start to pry off? Worried about breaking it!!!

    If you check out my SRXMods thread, i have pics of the plastic covers, which essentially shows you how to pull them out.

    I just pulled/wiggled the bulbs out. Yes, tight fit. Take a look with a flashlite at the bulbs, with dome lights off, for a good idea of angle/position to pull on it. In rear I haven't looked at in a while (still stock bulbs in mine) but I don't recall any problem opening them from either end......slowly. Maybe I got lucky? If immovable, of course, go to other end. Go slow, you'll be OK.

    The Capts pix/thread are very good! See here:

    Thanks Smokin' SRX for an informative post.
    Yes I've seen the pictures many times but it didn't answer my questions - hence my post.

    See this pic? It is the rear push cover for the light. The one stick end is the push end which you pry out first. The end with the two grabbers has to slide/yank out after the front is out, hence why it has the little square thingy's on the back of it.

    I used monofilament fishing line to remove the bulbs. I tied a hangman's loop and pushed it over the bulb as far back as it would go (to the flat part of the bulb). Apply steady pressure on the monofilament and the bulb will pop out. I advise pulling steady and not tugging because you may break something. I tried several bulb removers first and could not grip the bulbs in the over head console and rear lamps over the doors.

    Re: How do you change the interior front dome bulbs in a 2010 SRX?

    THANKS AGAIN CAPTAIN, got my lights from vleds.com yesterday, got the dome lights installed easy while I was sitting in the car with the doors closed, however how do you change the lights under the dash I have to have the door open to do this and the lights are on, and VERY VERY HOT. Did you either remove a battery cable or remove a fuse to change the rest of the bulbs so they are NOT on or how did u do it?????

    THX!!!!!

    Gloves buddy, little hand gloves, like mechanix gloves. Let the doors close and cool the light. Have the cover off so you're ready to rip the light out.
    Then once the doors have been closed for awhile, fling the doors open and quickly rip out as many incandescent's as you can. (foot well, and door spot lights)

    Next question: I pushed to hard changing the front overhead bulbs which pushed the socket up and away from the overhead console. How do I drop the console down (or get to this area easily)so I can snap the socket into whatever was holding it?

    Small screwdriver, and lightly flex and pull the centre overhead console down. Everything is held in by clips, but i missed a picture of this when it was out...
