REQ: Removal Tip for rear, interior, side housing

The subject says it all, I don't see a real easy way to remove this plastic piece right off the bat without breaking something.

I've held up my flashlight to the area highlighed/surrounded in a white rectangular box, and don't see a small tab or anything to depress.

Tips please!



P.S. I have no idea what the black bordered ghost is doing in the right-hand side of the pic, just pretend ya never saw it...like the droids.

(Can't modify header subject header to include 'LIGHT')

Well I feel silly now that I went out there and just gave a good hard PULL on the dang thing...

Boy that housing certainly can get HOT with the incandescent bulb being on for a few minutes, along with ambient being ~100' right now....

I'm going to look into LEDs for those along with the courtesy light bulbs in the front door panels, since those (the entire door panel) were recent upgrades/What did you do to your Caprice this weekend.....

Does anyone here on the forum still sell the LED bulbs? If som whos the contact?

Thx!

Ive actually had to replace those lights a few times from purchasing a low quality LED. I recently purchased a pack of 8 194 LED's from Pilot (hopefully better quality) on ebay.

One tip i can offer is before reassembling the light with new bulb verify you have the correct polarity of the bulb in the socket.

You want access to the bulb for the coat hook courtesy light? Looks like the lens just pry's off. I would assume very carefully though....brittle plastic maybe?

This thread has been resolved, I figured it out myself by just pulling on the entire thing.
