How do I remove the glove box light?

Stupid question I know but I searched and read the bullsh*t manual ("use a screw driver and remove bulb" ). Do I pry out the plastic lens part? Tried that but didn't want to force it.

yes that's all you have to do. if i'm not mistaken, you should have a small slot on one side to stick the flat screw driver in. then turn the screw driver left or right. the lens should pop right out.

You can take the golve box off ... 6 screws and it'll come right off ... once you do that the bulb will be exposed and you can disconnect the electrical connector if you wish to leave the bulb in there

fellas. I didn't notice I was prying the wrong side of the lens (left) until I brutishly removed it finally cracking it in the process. Oh well, it still stays put so if theres a next time I'll remember to pry the right side off.
