Question Dome light replacement

How do I remove the dome light over to replace my dome lights? It looked like one side had a tab but I was reluctant to press and pull since I didn't want to break it. Anyone replaced them before? Thanks!

slide a small flat screwdriver in the back and push a little hard and pull down this will remove it, the rear is a little tricky i hust removed the weatherstripping and pushed the tab i found this to be easier

Oh I forgot about that rear one. ltz03 is right! Its easier to remove the weatherstripping. You can push the pin and pull, but it takes a crap load of force and it seems like it may break easily!

Cool. Good luck with it. I hope to be installing new interior lights myself. If they get here in time.
