    Dome light removal

    How do you remove the dome light to replace the bulb without damaging the plastic bezel around the plastic cover? I keep trying to remove it but all i seem to be doing it damaging the soft plastic surrounding the dome light cover. So frustrating, i was also thinking that maybe i have to remove the whole console assembly? Anyone?

    Grab an outter edge and yank. Whole console assembly comes down and you replace the bulb from the top.

    Bad, I first thought "YANK IT OFF".

    Upon reflection, "Grasp firmly & pull down."

    Hahaha. The thought was there typing on the apps sucks at times so I tend to be brief at times.

    Thanks for the info on dome lights. Our 2005 STS has lost its dome light turn on buttons some where in the console.
    Will pull it down, disconnect the console and fix the switches. Restore Model A's for a hobby (all steel, wood, leather, glass and wool) so this will be interesting working with dainty plastic.
