    Lightbulb How to replace a map light in the 2008 Odyssey?

    Hello. I need to replace the map light on a 2008 Odyssey. I'm clueless about how to take the cover of the light off without damaging the Homelink buttons and the sunglasses holder. Could somebody please tell me how to do this? I thank you.

    I haven't tried on my ody yet but i have on my two cr-v's to

    do LED change. But anyways, I used a small SMALL flat

    screwdriver and sticked them in between the body and the

    plastic cover that moves and carefully popped them out. Be

    careful because you might leave some marks on the body

    if you put too much force in them. Hope it helps

    Here's the install guide for the HFL. Shows how to remove overhead console. You don't even need to go that far, just remove the plastic light covers by prying out with a small screw driver!

    Thank you both, richysh and King! I used the very small screwdriver. The schematic helped me see which of the two sides of the plastic cover I would need to pop it off. Very thankful.
