Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Remove this clip. It just screws in. You use a Phillips head screwdriver to pop it out. Pull it right out.

There's a screw here on the bottom and then one over here. Remove those two with a Phillips head screwdriver. Remove that screw. Over here, take this screw out.

Open the glove box. I already emptied it. You need to remove the one, two, three, four, five screws here and the two that are inside the glove box. With all those screws removed, pull the whole dash and glove box assembly out.

Change the glove box bulb. Just go to the back of it, turn it counter-clockwise. Little micro bulb just pulls straight out of the socket.

Put a new bulb in. Find the holes. Turn it clockwise and it locks it in place.

Reinstall the glove box. This pin here is going to snap into here and then reinstall all the screws. It helps if you open the glove box. Get this top screw first. Just reinstall all the screws again. Close the glove box. Install the two screws in the bottom. Finally, reinstall this push clip and screw it in place.
