    tough to do and see at the same time... push up gently on the headliner around the edges of that thing and see if you see any screws there.

    any obvious screw or bolts... if it has compartments they are likely inside those areas

I would like to know how I can replace the map light for a 2004 jeep've tried everything and I can not remove the plastic lens to access this bulb

Remove the Console Assy and they are replaced from the Inside of the Console. Remove the Phillips Screw at the Front of the Console, then pinch your Fingers behind both sides of the Console next to each Light Bezel and PULL Down. The Console assy has 2 Metal clips that hold it up - Very Easy, just pull the assembly straight down.

CHRYSLER 300M 1999 How to replace the bulb of the inside spot on the roof

Pardon the delay,Jean Marie. It's been a busy holiday season MERRY CHRISTMAS, by the way! The upper "console" can be unscrewed by one screw nearest the windshield. To find it, just move your fingers over the housing until you touch a "dimple" in the housing near the windshield straight on your line of site. Now, I don't recall if it is a TORX or Phillips head screw (wager: TORX20-30) but it will make it loose. Then pry the front (GENTLY!) away from the ceiling using a wide blade putty knife or panel removal tool. It should pop off to reveal a bunch of wires and a couple of light bulbs. They are long, "mini" looking things that resemble florescent lights or the old glass fuses cars used to have. Reassemble in reverse of your current steps, and GO!!

I had the same issue with my 2008 w/ moonroof. It's tough but you just have to evenly apply pressure on both sides and pull it straight down. There's two pressure clips that are holding it. I replaced with LEDS, the rear was tough as well!

I have a 2007 sport trac with the overhead console and sun roof. i would like to change the map lights but after removing the lens it looks like i may have to remove the whole console just to replace the...

Looks like it is pretty easily removed.

Use a small screw driver and pry open the garage door opener storage bin. You will see 1 screw there that you will remove.
Pull the front of the overhead console down and remove the console from the console retaining clips.

Sunroof console (where the map lights are located) has a black screw you can turn with a coin. Located just beyond the map lights. Turn 1/4 turn and that panel releases. There is a manual handle that is snapped into the console towards the back left. It is not that big. It is black and "T" shaped. Insert that handle into the motor which is located directly beneath the panel. It is brass colored most likely. about the size of a deck of cards. The handle tip inserts there. Turn handle until stops and pull down to disengage the motor. You should then be able to operate the crank. I had same problem. Had a tough time closing roof. Works intermittently. Don't know if it is the motor or switch. I think motor as I hear mine trying to engage but it is no longer moving the roof panel. Good luck.

These instructions are contained in the manual.
