Nothing is more frustrating than being lost on an empty road, only to have the map lights burn out the second you need them. The good news is that replacement is literally a snap and should take no more than five minutes.

The interior map lights are located between the sun visors in the center of the dash.
Figure 1

The interior map lights are located between the sun visors in the center of the dash. Use a screwdriver to pry along the front edge (green arrows) of the cover plate as shown here.

Once the cover plate is removed, you can pull the side map light bulbs (green arrows) straight out.
Figure 2

Once the cover plate is removed, you can pull the side map light bulbs (green arrows) straight out. The center light bulb (yellow arrow) needs to be pivoted out, one side at a time. Make sure that the center light is correctly seated before popping the cover back on.
