With the overhead console ( non rail system ), open the sun glass bin, and grab each corner in the back, and pull down.

The overhead is held on with 4 or 6 spring clips, and pulls straight down.

The bulbs are 1/4 twist sockets installed from the back of the overhead console.

Changing the interior map light


The bulbs is replaced from the back of the overhead console with 1/4 turn bulb holders.

the overhead console ( non rail version ) is held up with spring clips.

Open the rear compartment, and grab the rear corners and pull down 1 at a time. They are very hard to pull the 1st few times. Once you have the read released, there is another set of spring clips in the front, so be careful how far down you pull the rear, until the front is released.

Once you can see the back of the overhead console, you will see the 1/4 turn bulb holders for the map and interior lights.

How do I access the interior map lamp housing and remove to replace a lamp?


You need to remove the overhead console to get to the bulb holder.

Open the rear compartment, and pull down grasping the rear corners with your finger and thumb.

The 1st time you pull it down is hard, the spring clips do not move that easy the 1st few times.

Once the rear releases, you can work your way around the console, pulling loose the spring clips.

The bulbs are held in from the back using 1/4 turn bulb holders.

How to remove map light cover


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.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE FRONT DOME-MAP LIGHT HOUSING


For the non rail system overhead console :

There are spring clips holding the console to the roof.

Open the compartment, and grasp each corner, and pull down. This will take a moderate amount of pull to release the spring clips.

There are 4 or 6 spring clips holding the console to the ceiling, at the least the center spring clips will release when you pull down on the rear.
remove the front held in place by the spring clips. There are 2 connectors for the overhead console, these have ~ 6" if slack in them.

From this point, you can remove the connectors, or you will see the gray bulb holders for the map / interior lamps. These are 1/4 twist bulb holders.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE BULBS FOR THE MAP LIGHTS AND THE CIGAR ASH RECEIVER WITHOUT BREAKING ANYTHING.


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.

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.
