Default removing interior lights

how would one remove the door panel lights, and the courtesy lights in the headliner. I came across this spraybomb paint in the arts and crafts store. Its a stained glass paint that is water soluable. it looks great The rest of my cars lights are blue.....( Front and rear turn signals, led marker lights, neon'* and so on. I really want the rest of the car to glow. I would also like to know if it is possible to change over the whole dash lights form red to blue, i have all the time in the world, so thats not a problem . Thanks

the front courtesy ligjhts come down by pulling firmly downward from the back and then there is 3 wires plugged into the panel. one for the homelink system, one for the sunroof controls and one plug for the lights. The back courtesy lights come out by unscrewing the two torx bolts that are visible when you pull down the handles. If your just trying to paint the clear plastic pieces those pry out of both assemblies quite easily with a knife blade of flat head screwdriver

Yep... It'* a good thing I'm not in the states. I have never been bugged about them. The cops around here have more important stuff to worry about.

ya they are totally illegal, the only blue that can technically be on your vehicle is if you are a Snowplow. And since there is no snow up here yet they really stick out
