Are these the 194 bulbs? If so you just need to pull and wiggle.

Which item are the bulbs in? Grab handle, map light/overhead console? None of them are 194'*. The only 194'* I can recall in the cabin are the under dash hush panel lights.

All the others have a metal tab that holds the bulb in place.
