there's two screws; you need to unscrew them first, then pry the plastic cover...

I have blue neon accents in my car, so I keep dome light off, but if I need to see the map - don't have gps yet laughsilly - I just upgraded mine for superwhite.

Yeah, nothing to it. Funny, mine burned out a week ago, and my Celi is still new. Defective bulb, I suppose.
