    How do I get to the bulb in the overhead push button map Light? I have a 2004 ford f150.

    I don't have a sunroof, so I do have the overhead rail system. How do I access the bulb - no visible means to remove the lens.

    I have the same problem as cole78 and have not yet read a possible solution. after buying the used truck last year, the rear sliding window would not work and the map lights would,most of the time. One day I just reached up and bumped the map light unit and the window has worked ever since, but the map lights haven't. How do we get the unit of the ceiling in order to check the wiring for shorts or change out bad bulbs? Thank you.

2004 f150 dome light with center roof rails, how do you replace the light bulb on the drivers side. This is the type that you push on and push off.

Double check, the rail system roof console should be held on with just spring clips ( check for a screw facing down, or to the side, pull out the rail accessory boxes to be sure ).

If so, start on one side with a hook plastic trim tool and pull down to release the spring clip, and work your way around.

On the back of the roof console the bulbs are installed in 1/4 turn bulb holders, remove form the back to replace the bulb.

How do you change the inside overhead light on a 2004 f150 supercrew?

there are two different dome lights in the supercrew one is connected to the garage door opener and sunglass holder other wise known as map lights. to get these out just simply pull the unit and the blubs unscrew from the back insert the new blubs and replace the unit. the other type depends on the model of f150 you have one is the normal dome light in witch you just pop the cover off and replace the light. the other is just like the front map light where you just pull the unit out and replace the bulbs the same way.

Map light removal on a 2008 Ford f350

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!

You have to pull it down from the head liner. Start at one side or the other and you should notice a little play it simply pulls down from the head liner.
