Cargo Area Lens Removal?

I just got my LEDs today and installed the first 6 interiors in about 10 minutes (I had 15 minutes of my lunch break left). I did have to remove 4 of the 6 reflectors, though. Oh well! I couldn't quickly figure out how to get the lens in the cargo area off. Any tricks here? I was afraid of breaking it if I just pulled on it. I McGyver'd all the others (used my pocket knife), but couldn't quickly figure this one out.

small screw driver will pop off the lens. Did you get the 212 bulb?

I hate that light! PITA alert!

I found its easier to gently pull down on the headliner to fit a little pick in there to disengage the clip.......

Well, I went out there and tried again on my afternoon break. It is a PITA! I broke off one of the clips that holds it in. It's back in but barely hanging. If I ever have to change the bulb, I doubt it will go back together. Anyone know where to buy a new lens, other than the dealer?

I hate that light!! I got it off by prying one side down a bit then working my knife against the little clip thing on the end. Take your time and be patient, it took me 2 days but it worked!!

I think it may be best to get it from the dealer since it is a cheap part anyway and you may pay more for shipping anyway. You can also try a salvage yard. Below are links for the rear lens for the extended and short wheel base. Based on the price they look like the same part. If you are ordering other parts you may want to order from below.
