Yea Rob, I just went back outside with a set of pliers and gently wiggled it out. Looks sooo much better.

Thank you Mike for the write up!
Thank you Nate for the bulb list!
Yeah no problemo, its not fully detailed as some might have liked but i just have been so busy with the new job and it takes a lot of time outta other things.

But over all the rear license plate sockets are just tight and there's no grip to put your fingers on em. Just gotta get a pair of pliers and wiggle them out with care not to crush the bulb while doing it.

You can use the 194 -168 models for the interior...wedge shaped ones are the ones you want (http://www.v-leds.com/194-168-158-LE.../sc416748-1-2/). You will also need two different types for the map lights..these i believe... (http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED/D...-p6941706.html). I used these bulbs for my license plate, they work quite well (http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/C...14849-1-2.html). My pic has different license plate bulbs in it that i replaced with the ones in the link.

Re: How To: Install Interior LED Lights (a pictorial guide)

Any word on the cargo area install? I tried tonight but the screwdriver I had didn't fit and I didn't want to try to force it. Anyone actually taken the panel off?

When I did mine, I had to take off the back panel. Just a few phillips head screws and a little force and it pops right out!

Yeah just be patient with it, it does pop right off when you have all the screws undone. I just never added the pictures or a quick write up on it because I installed it at a later date and didn't take any pics. If and when i have to take it apart again, ill include it.
