If you're talking about the map lights (2 lights in between driver and passenger)
If you have just the map lights, just pull the whole assembly out. Don't worry about anything breaking, just pull it down, just not at an angle or anything. It easily snaps back into place after. Bulbs can be removed once you have it out.
If you have an overhead console, you remove a screw towards the front of the overhead console Then just pull. If you're talking about other interior lights, let me know I'll let you know how to remove it.
The map light cover is part of the over head console.
For the non overhead rail system, open the rear compartment, and grab in the rear corners, pulling down. 4 or 6 spring clips hold it up. 1st time is the hardest to get it down, part spring tension, part worried about breaking something. It is a hard pull, but will come down.
Once you have the overhead console down, you will see the gray 1/4 turn bulb holders installed from the back. These are 2 element bulbs, take one with to the parts sore.
First off, on this model you don't have plug wires, you have coil packs with a boot and coil connected to the pack. The boot slides on the tops of the spark plug. The good thing about this is that you don't have to mark each wire to its location.
So to replace the plugs you need to disconnect the electrical connector to the coil pack and then unbolt the two bolts that mount the pack down, then remove the pack.
Next with a ratchet, an extension and a special spark plug socket, which has an insulator inside to protect the porcelain from getting cracked, remove the spark plugs.
Next step is to replace the plug, usually I slide off the boot from the coil pack and then remove the coil from inside the boot and slide the boot over the spark plug and start to thread the plug back in. Using this method allows to you feel if you are threading the plug in right. Then with a torque wrench you would torque the spark plug to the specs for the type of engine you have.
Next reinstall the coil pack with the two mounting bolts, it is only necessary to hand tigthen the two bolts. Then plug back in the electrical connector and continue this process on the next 5 spark plugs.

To remove the map light bulbs you need to first remove the overhead console.
To do this you need to remove the screw at the front of the overhead console (which is more towards the front windshield).
Next you need to pry down on the rear of the overhead console and then disconnect the electrical connectors.
Then, with the overhead console pulled down, pull of the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.
Installation is the reverse of the removal process.
To change the bulbs for the map lights you need to first remove the screw located on the overhead console which is towards the front of the console (towards the front window). Then you need to pry down on the rear of the console. Once the console is removed you then need to remove the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.
As for the bulbs for the ashtray I am not sure if there is one.
