Dome Light Replacement
#1
Dumb question here but I need to swap the bulb in the subject light on my 73 Mach 1 and see nothing on it in the manuals. I have proven to to pretty solid breaking little tabs when doing such (just did it on my 17 Boxster S...). I assume I squeeze in the middle of the long sides and pull? TIA.

Be careful when its brittle, squeeze softly in the middle of that white piece(maybe time for LED)

I gave up on the 44mm bulb after placing my fourth new lens and went over to LED. All burned in the middle.
You can get these for pinuts a dozen on E-bay and gone is the heat.

I will prolly replace again with warmer colour later on or add a filter in between lens and LED if I can't find these in amber/yellow.
Thought the yellowish LED panel would be the light colour. Its not, instead its a really white light. Ideal to work in the car, just not as cosy inside as it was with the incandescent bulb. But the heat is gone, which is why I've changed in the first place. No more new lens every once in a while.

That’s what I did to. Now I can actually see inside my car at night with the dome light on.
