Have a look at this threadhttps://www.antaraownersclub.com/foru...topic2194.htmlInterior bulbs are 501's and you only need a thin screwdriver to pop the covers off.

Did you try turning them around as sometimes that is all you need to do. Done the fronts and only took about two minutes. Ordered ones for the rear and number plate. Anyone know the size of the opening for the front sidelights as I want to put Cree ones in there but they vary in size.

I had a look at mine today with a variety of small screwdrivers and tbh can't find a way to get the front lens cover off either. Tried it top side first followed by lower side but no joy, had to stop levering before something broke. Might be worth trying if you remove the sunglasses holder (two screws) first and see if that lets you see anything.

Victor. I found even a small screwdriver was too wide. I used a very thin sharp kitchen knife. Prised a part at the back of the lens down then held it with my finger then moved the knife further along and it popped out nicely.

You'll notice two squares on all lights. Put a very thin screwdriver in either one and they pop off. Same for all interior lights.
