Detach the dome light lens from the assembly

Disengage the spring clip that retains one tapered end of this dome light bulb, and then withdraw the bulb

1.Using a small prytool, carefully remove the cover lens from the lamp assembly.

2.Remove the bulb from its retaining clip contacts. If the bulb has tapered ends, gently depress the spring clip/metal contact and disengage the light bulb, then pull it free of the two metal contacts.

To install:
3.Before installing the light bulb into the metal contacts, ensure that all electrical conducting surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.

4.Position the bulb between the two metal contacts. If the contacts have small holes, be sure that the tapered ends of the bulb are situated in them.

5.To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.

6.Install the cover lens until its retaining tabs are properly engaged.
