    There is a single screw on that overhead console that you can remove to remove the console.

    Having said that, I haven't been able to remove mine. I have a bulb out in it, but the console will NOT disengage from the headliner.

    The ones on our 2001 DCV just just have the lens pop off if you press it in the wrong location in the dark (do not ask how I know this). I replaced it by aligning the lens back up with the mounting hinge for the swivel side and firmly pressing back in (in the day time). If yours are like mine, they should just pop off.

    You just have to use a screwdriver and put it in under the lense, from the side, and lever it. It will pop out.

    The bad news is the bulb is some queer bulb that you can't find at the usual parts store. Or at least not around here. It has a fancy base added to a almost standard bulb, but I'm not sure you can change it out without destroying everything. Looks like a captive Chrysler part.

    Thanks everyone! Mac that was exactly what I needed to know! I removed the lens and it turned out that I just needed to turn the special bulb some as it was not making proper electrical contact. YEAH BABY LET THERE BE LIGHT!

    I've searched all over. The only place I could find is RockAuto & they only sell them in 10 packs

    Total cost over $30

    Any ideas?
