Push the top part in, and roll down. You MUST remove the entire light assy just to pull the panel off

You pull off the cover (it has four little clips), then towards the latch end of the door there is a clip, then the entire ilght assembly comes out of the door. The bulbs twist out.

Be careful, those bulbs can fall back into the door too...

And don't shove metal back there when it could be on. You'll short them... ( i tried pulling the white housing out once with allen wrenches cause the previous owner glued it in..)

Sparks and fuses flew.
