Hope these pictures are a bit better,

The best way I found to doing it was to get my smallest trim pry tool and just carefully lift the covers out and then swapping the bulbs is straight forward, when doing the boot lid light, go at it on the right hand side and get your trim tool in as far as it will go before you try to remove it, otherwise it will snap...like mine did!

They are yes, they light up when a door is opened

Can anyone help me remove the lights in the rear view mirror. I see the lenses twist round a bit but then I can’t seem to get them out? Thanks

I believe the rear view mirror lights are fixed and can't be changed.

That is correct, I was talking to my service girl about it, and it’s on their list as one complete unit...if I remember I’ll get the number for it, not sure if it can be modded before instal?
