    Does anyone know how to remove it, the reason is that the mic pop out and the only way to fix it is to removing the dome (map) light.

    Any help thanks.

    For anyone else the whole assembly pulls straight down. Four clips straight into the roof. Ease a trim tool in on the right side, cable connector up on the left so be carefull. Try and get hold of a big area and gently ease down, its tight first time but eases up. You can access the bulbs once it is out, they are in a bulb holder twist plug and lift at the top. Some have removed the light cover, to change bulbs, better to remove the whole assembly as the lense clips break off. Get your trim tool up into the roof dont pull on the lense cover edges. One of the hook shaped trim tools works, preferably two.

    I'm glad you revived this thread. I have been looking for the LED install link above yours for a while now. :D

    I found some photos that might help, I was fitting the dash cam and taking a feed off the dome light feed. Excuse the paint rag! The holes in the roof are where the dome light plastic clips fit in one in each corner, not all of them.
    The last picture is what happens if you try to take off the surround. Note the broken clips!
