How to remove the interior map and cabin lights on your VE Commodore.

Difficulty Rating


Tools/Parts Required

  • LED or Crystal Vision globes if you’re replacing the stock halogen globes!

Step 1

Front Interior Lights

Wedge your fingers in the areas as marked and firmly pull down on the housing. The entire housing should come down as shown in the next step.

Step 2

Pull the housing downwards and forwards to release the hooks. Re-install by reversing this process.

Step 3

Each globe can be removed by twisting the globe holder.

You can replace the cabin light with a LED, however the map lights will not work with most generic LEDs. These require a LED with a resistor.

Step 4

Rear Interior Lights

Grasp the housing as directed and gently pull downwards. This will come loose very easily.

Step 5

Twist out the globe holder to access the globe. Reinstall as per the removal process.
