    So I successfully replaced the red-lens door courtesy bulb with an LED - works great. I happened to have the door trim panel off in order to adjust the latch, so I got at the fixture that way. Is there a way to change the bulb without taking off the door panel? Somehow pop the red lens off from the outside? It didn’t seem like it but if I ever just want to change the bulb I’d rather not deal with removing the trim panel. Getting the door pocket screws aligned with their threaded holes was a real PITA.

    I think taking off the door panel is the only way. With an LED bulb you should be set for life. I use a scratch awl or small drill bit to line up the holes.

    Gotta take the door card off, there are one way tabs on the housing that hold it in place and prevent removal
