2008 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Cab (without moon roof or rails): How to replace the map light bulbs.  First, you'll need a "trim pad remover."  It is a tool with a screwdriver handle and the metal part has a 'smooth' forked tongue (see Snap-on Stock#: A177A for picture).  Go to the center counsel and "gingerly" work around he counsel and pull down at the same time.  The counsil is held in by six snap in tongs.  It should remove pretty easily.  once down, you'll see where the bulbs are.  Unscrew and replace.  Now, just line up the tongs and gently bump or hit the pressure points (where the tongs are) and it should snap into place.  It should take no more than five minutes, tops.

I changed the entire dome light fixture due to weak tabs that hold the center light.. now the dome lights work,the map lights do not work.there a fuse or something that controls the map lights? ?

Absolutely! There's a fuse that controls every light on your truck. Some share the same circuit, some don't. Consult your manual. If you don't have one, get one - you will need it repeatedly.

My 2008 Buick Lucerne Super has a roof leak. The vehicle has a sun roof. Particularly during rains of long duration, water appears along the interior face of the upholstered columns to either side of...

The roof drain hose may have come off

You may have 4,one on each corner

Or they are clogged

Open the roof & look for drain holes to blow out

If the hose is off, you have to remove the sun visor
& any overhead console, to get the head liner down
& put hose back on

Removing dome light for replacement of bulb do you just pull down on plactic frame ?

The non rail roof panel is held in place with spring clips. The 1st time you take it down, it will be a very hard pull. Open the rear compartment ( that the inserts go into for sun glasses and the likes ) and pull on each corner, this will get the back clips off, and make it easier to pull down on the front.

How do I remove the door panel on a Ford F250 Supercab. I'm trying to find the switch for the ''doors adjar' light which won't go off and subsequently keeps my dome and outside bed light on and draws down...

the door adjar switch is the problem. the cargo light stays on until 35mph, as well as the overhead dome light. i just took the bulb out of the dome light and dont worry about the cargo light. it stays on for 30 min after the truck is turned off if the switch didnt trip properly. it shouldnt cause any problems as long as your batteries are good. i havent replaced the switch yet but it should be on the part of the door by the latch. get the replacement part and do a visual I.D. when you get the panel off. then replace it. the sensor is only 14$

How do I change out the dome lite on my 2005 150 king ranch

For a 2005 MY F-150 :
The rear ( if SCab or SuperCrew ) there is a little notch in the lens that is used to push in a tab and lower that side, slide out from the back.

The front, non rail system is open the rear sunlgasses compartment, and grab each corner. Pull down, there is 4 or 6 spring clips that hold the overhead console to the roof. Once down, you will see the gray bulb holders. Twist out the bulb holder, and the bulb plugs into the holder. They are 2 element over sized 194 type bulbs ( think it is a 39 or 67 ??? not sure on that ).
Rail system is slightly different
