Bulb removal

Anyone have a diagram of the dome light bulb removal on a 2013 Wrangler. Got some LEDs to install. Can't find it anywhere and don't want to f@$& anything up. Thanks in advance

I don't have a diagram, but I've swapped the bulbs in both jeeps. Do you mean the dome in the sound bar? The plastic cover is attached with two hook arms at the front side of the jeep, and opens down at the rear. You can open placing your fingers on the rear, and squeezing back and down. I also used a small flathead screw driver to gently pry it open.

Be sure to let the bulbs cool, or use a towel to get the bulbs out as they get hot fast.

Got the cover off. It's the bulbs. How do I remove them?

The bulb has the connectors coming directly out the bottom. I placed my fingers at the bottom of the bulb between the glass and connector area and used it as leverage to push/pull the bulb out of the holder horizontally with the roofline of the jeep. Don't pull straight down as it's likely to break. One of them I had a problem with and used needle nose pliers to pry it out. I was certain it was going to shatter, but worked out fine. Ymmv.

If you don't get it before morning, I'll take a picture and show what I mean.

Pull. They just push in. No clip or anything fancy
