    Does anyone have advice on how to access the bulb to the map light in the rear view mirror? It’s for a 1969 Buick Skylark Custom Convertible.
    Thanks!

    Pry down on small plastic cover at one end. Should come right off. Push in on metal connectors to release bulb. It loops over metal connectors at both ends.

    When you take cover off push in with small screw driver at one end so tabs don’t snap off

    Great. I’ll give that a shot. I didn’t see a clear way to initially do it and I didn’t want to break anything.
    Thanks!

    Yes I did. In two pieces.LOL
    I broke it. Thankfully I found one on eBay and installed it.
    Thanks!

    Ya 50 old plastic can be brittle. Glad you found another.
