yeah they are like dome lights and go on and off with the doors and locks. also stay on for a while after the car goes off and they can be manually turned on with each side individually by pressing a button on the bottom of the mirror. i want to change the bulbs in them and can get the plastic covers off, but cant get the bulbs out. there has to be an easier way lol

the translucent lens comes off with a couple clips built in - you can take it off with your key.

the bulbs are just recessed enough that my fingers cant get in there to pull the bulbs out

i think there might be a way to get at it from behind (lol wow) but i cant figure it out

Yea, the lens just pops out. Heres the easiest method to prevent breaking the lil clips.

I used a flathead percision screwdriver.
Insert the screwdriver into the slot furthest to the outside of the lens, then gently pry to the inside and down to pull the lens down.
Then to put the lens back on place, place the 2 inside clips in place first, and gently pop the rest of the lens in place.

Heres a pic to help:




Hell, this might make a good how to Farfromnormal

Hey, I just got it. The bulb has a flat plugin that sits vertical. I put the screwdriver near the plug and pried the bulb upwards. Came right out with no damage.
