I just use my knife and pry out one side then the other. 4 metal clips hold it in, 2 each side, top and bottom

Re: Sunroof/Cruise Control Facia Removal

I took 2 flat screw drivers. Wrapped both with a cloth so you dont scratch the dash nor the panel. Then slowly little by little wedge the drivers inward and pry slightly til you notice the upper n lower clips of both sides have popped out of its place. Once you have enough gap then pry the rest with your hands!!!

x2. The first time you do it it will piss you off way more than it should/ Its a serious pita, after that though it won't be so bad in the future.

SUPER simple. remove the switches by removing the two screw per each switch. ( they are small and gold.) bulbs will be on the side of the switch( with the exception of the moonroof button, which will be on the back IIRC) simply twist and replace. be VERY careful not to scratch the copper filament type **** though, I did that and am now having connection issues -.-

Where the bulbs screw into. the socket per se.

I actually took pics as I plan to make a diy fix for when I eventually get around to it.



Thats my moonroof button btw...

Thanks to lilmsprelude for pointing out my issue.

Edit: if you need more pics I have some on my sd card, just gots to upload them as I did with that one....

well I think the issue is that you're going to scratch them as the wist and lock bases must seat right, and well that copper sucks. so just be gentle when reinserting bulbs....

shouldn't cause any problems...
