To replace the bulb in your dome light, shut the power off by pushing the switch all the way to the driver's side. Place a flat blade screwdriver in. Pop out the lens. Push up on the bulb to remove it. Push the tab in, and remove the bulb.

To reinstall the bulb, line up the hooked loops on the ends with both sides. Push up and pull it back down in to secure. Place one side of the lens in first. Push the other up and check for proper operation of the switch, and you're good to go.
