Glove Box light...
 
Who the heck designed this? The light is partially obscured in the corner and changing it out to LED was a PITA trying to get out the original wedge bulb. Of course once I got the bulb out my pliers loose grip and bulb drops behind the covers :cool:

You know the side comes off too right? Open the passenger door and pop off the side cover. Allows you to use two hands, one from inside the glove box and one from outside. Its still difficult however.

Even after your warning, I still dropped the halogen light down the inside of the well:slapfight: I second your observations, what a bitch of a light to change. Just to get the halogen out, even with that side panel partially pulled off was a nightmare, let alone getting the LED in! I ended up pulling the bottom of the glove box partially off and using some tape on wire to fish the lost halogen out.

CONSPIRACY THEORY - Hmmmm, I wonder if the GC is designed in such a way to put us "weekend" tinkerers off..... that light globe was so difficult to change the average person would get the dealer to do it..... for a cost of course! The same with the battery. Getting the +ve cable off was a bitch, but getting it back on..... well that is another story. As for getting the battery out......:mad: That is my 10 cents worth!!

Thanks for your advice, helped me out heaps. Now to tackle the lights inside the tailgate...:eek:
