Has anyone removed the overhead console lately to replace the map light bulbs? I do have trim tabs tools, but the console does seems very tight against the headliner. Tips or suggestions?

My overhead console is different, it is much larger and has the crawl control built on into it.

I removed mine after reassurances that I wasn’t going to break it from Baz!! It is insanely tight and you think it will snap! There is a clip on each corner. I ended up doing it with leather gloves on to stop it cutting into my hand and the trim removal tools just didn’t want to know. Worst outcome is a clip gives out and that is easy to swap but mine came off with no clip failures

I was able take a trim tab and get one corner unpinned. Moved to the corner on the same side, quick tug and the console popped off, no problem. Replaced bulbs with LED lights, and it is looking good.
