Thanks P! Will change back compartment tomorrow...I used a small flat head screwdriver and microfiber towel and carefully pried everything off. The microfiber is reduce scratching. The door lights and dome lights have little slots for you to insert the screwdriver so those are easy. The map lights are a little trickier. The arrows in the pic show where I inserted the screwdriver and gently pried them off. Its important you're gentle because those are the clips that hold it in place. (I currently have led panels in are much brighter than these)
Not short of dimming the dash lights all the way down...Another question related to lights and lenses. Is there a way to turn off the "blue-led" courtesy light which is between the two overhead lights on the overhead front panel????
