People enter your life for 1 of 2 reasons.. Either to be a Blessing or a lesson.
there's a tab on one end that you press in and then the whole assemble will pull out.
Once you have the assembly out- then you slide the back of the assembly off to get at the bulb.
when time comes to put it back together- MAKE SURE YOU TEST THE BACK to be sure you slide it on and it is locked to the whole bulb. Otherwise when you press the whole assembly back in place it will fall apart and you will spend 20 minutes trying to fish out the back- trust me on this- lol.
Be weary if you got the bulb from precision. I had two problems with them and they corrected it but the bulb they finally sent me for the glovebox was not correct- it was the correct size/shape but the contact pattern was not the same. Seems the "typical" pattern of the contact is left to right - so that's what precision got me. But the socket in the truck is front to back. So the precision bulb shorts the socket.
I got impatient with the precision bulb and tried to dremel off the offending contacts but that killed the bulb (I figured it was a 50/50 shot or probably 25/75)
I think the correct bulb is like this one:
Amazon.com: LEDwholesalers Mini-Wedge T5 74 LED Bulb with 3xSMD3528, White, 1408WH: Automotive
notice it doesn't carry the front contact all around to the rear not the rear to the front so no shorts.
