Re: Maplight removal

slip your fingers under it(the end towards the windshield) and pull down. It is held in by tension clips only bro.....

Thats all thats holding it up? i figured the map lenses themselves needed to be removed first. I dont want to snap anything off and be driving with it hanging back and forth to work all week.

Also, mine has the sunglass holder attached to it. this shouldnt require any other method right?

Re: Maplight removal

had mine off many times bro.....it seems tough and then it just pops right out. All the upper mapl;ights are the same in the WK...except some have the sunroof button for obvious reasons.
