    While replacing the center light bulb it came loose from the print and fell inside . I want to get it out and try to fix it. I want to get this assembly out of the ceiling without damaging the ceiling itself. In the back, where the sunglasses tray is located there are 2 screws. In front I can only see 2 white plastic buttons. Impossible to get out without using great force. I got the screws out but the console won't budge.
    Anyone?

    I have seen posts like this before long time ago and from what i remember you pry it out at this point at certain pry points.

    Give it a little while someone who knows will come along and help.

    Yeah I got the same thing on mine it’s loose inside and I forgot about it, I think there’s little relief slots you put a flat blade screwdriver in and pop it out by I have not done that yet.
