you need a really thin flat head screw driver.
there are four tabs around the base of the unit thingie (the controls for the roof, the light lens, and the on/off switch)
stick the screw driver in the back (the part closest to the moon/ sun roof) and pry it appart where the tabs are. then simply pull down the whole face.

here are some pics:
the face half way off. notice where the tabs are that secure it.

the face plate. the lens does not come off. it is glued/melted in.

my replacement bulb. that b!tch is bright.



sorry for the crappy directions. its kinda hard to explain. its easy to do though. let me know if you need more help.

i just thought id throw that in.
