Hi all and sorry for the spelling mistakes to follow. How do you change the interior light bulb the set that i where the rear view mirror i have looked all through the Lexus owners book and am unable to find anything in there about it. I have also tried to use a flat headed screw driver to prise it open and i cant do it any thoughts ?

Thanks all and HAPPY CHRISTMAS.

I personally wouldn't use a screwdriver to avoid damaging the plastic accidentally, it comes off really easily just using your fingers :)

Just don't put any pressure on the clear bit, as that could break it off the rest of the housing.

thanks - the interior front bulb - Ba9 just refers to the bulb base design. Do you know the part number (R***)?
The bulb I've taken out is a 10W domed glass one.
