Removing the Dome Lights

Hey guys! I am sure this is on here somewhere but I cannot find it .. Looking to swap out the interior dome lights with some LED bulbs, anyone done this before? Are there just tabs you need to hit on each side to release the fixture? Thanks!

Just want to confirm, the tabs are on each side correct? Just want to make sure it's not just the actual covering for the bulb that pops off.

Locking tabs are on the front.

There are guide tabs on the back.

They are really cheap. Look up T10 LED bulbs on ebay or something. They are available in a variety of colors, and if you want something with a little more light intensity then look up LED boards with the T10 connector. Offer (2SSRS) also sells them on his website (http://www.gen5diy.com). DO NOT pay more than $7 for these bulbs like those "other" websites.

Just curious, while we're on this subject does anyone know where to get the exact color matching the SS interior blue? It's like an aqua type blue.. Thanks!
