Hello the4rsr.

I can't recall having to remove one recently on a Honda Civic but most covers on Honda's interior lights snap into place.
Use a small screwdriver to gently push back the edges to locate a tab that locks the cover into the housing. Push back at the tab area until it pops out.
Replace the bulb.
There you are.
Thank you for using FixYa and have a happy New Year.

SOURCE: The interior dome light is burned out, removing cover problem.

You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
Gently, give it a try.
Hope this helps you.

Which fuse do I pull that goes to the dome lights


Typically, the dome light fuse runs other items as well. If you wish to kill the dome light without stopping other things as well, it would be better to just remove the bulb. You don't say what you are working on, but most dome light covers come off pretty easily by squeezing the plastic and popping them loose.

Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.

How to replace interior dome light bulb?


1) Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.

2) Make sure the dome light switch is turned to the "Off" position. Pry the plastic lens away from the dome light. Use a small, flat-head screwdriver.

3) Push back the side bulb clamp. Pull out the old dome lightbulb. Wipe the area with a paper towel if it is dirty.

4) Wrap the new bulb in a paper towel (oil from your skin will shorten its life). Insert it into the dome lightbulb holder. Push it up gently to secure it.

5) Turn the switch to "On" to test the bulb. Reposition the cover and push up to lock the clips into place.

If the bulb doesn't work, you've got a bad switch somewhere, probably on the drivers door.

How to open the dome light


There is a plastic tab on 2 sides of the clear (opaque) plastic cover. the cover should be squeezed in towards the center of the light, which will allow the plastic tabs to release from the light fixture so u can remove the cover. Squeeze again to re-install. If you have trouble removing this way, very gently insert small flat screwdriver at outside center of lens, pry gently in to see and release tab.
