I'm talking about the overhead console lights. If you scroll the little wheel by the headlight switch all the way up there are 2 lights that come on in each plastic lens total of 4. This thread thanks to yocubed tells you how to change just 2 of them. The other 2 are still yellow looking and I really need to do something about it.

It comes off. The non recommend way is to remove the cover similar to the OP pics and carefully release the two rear tabs. It's possible, but again not recommended. The recommend way is removing the overhead console. There is an interior from removal guide on WK2Jeeps.

The other two map lights are integrated into the circuit board, not an easy swap.

Re: LED Overhead console How To

To change the bulbs you are actually supposed to yank on the console firmly to dislodge the spring clips.

After you get it down you can access the bulbs from the back.


People have been trying to get under the covers and they have luck that way but they complain how little space there is to get to the bulbs.

I was referring to the "map" lights I guess...Found out they are already an LED and are attached to a circuit board under there. So i'm not going to mess with it. I was able to get the whole cover off though by unclipping it and pulling the piece towards the back of the car at an angle. No breakage and made installing the bulbs easy.
