Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

To remove this, the bulb is burnt out. This one's working, but we're going to show you how to take this out anyways. Take a plastic prying tool. You can get this from Just kind of push in on this side. It'll pop it out. There's a clip there that you're trying to pop it out of. Push in the tab and now you can change the bulb.

To change this courtesy light bulb that's in the door, the bulb's inside here. To get this plastic off, it's a tab. You can just push it in with your finger and sort of pull it up and just kind of push in over here. It pops out. Now we can access the bulb. If need be, you can use a plastic prying tool. You can get these from Just kind of press it out of the metal tabs. This is a 158, but if you're in a pinch, a 194 mini bulb will work too.

To reinstall it, doesn't matter which way it goes. Just push it back in. Put this cover back on and push it together and reinstall it in the car. Plug it in. You'll know the bulb is good because it'll light up with the door open. It's a little courtesy light. Slide it back into place. It snaps right in.
