How to change bulb in dome light?

I think the center bulb on my front dome light is burned out. The two side lights work with the switches and the rear dome light is working. How do you take that light off - I didnt see any screws, and I am not great with the clips that are used everywhere nowadays. I guess its ok if you know what direction to push, but these big hands and old eyes are not condusive to that stuff...

You gotta yank her straight down! Best of luck pulling the bezel down. Some break and some don't.

Flat head screw driver and lots of patience and pulling slightly... It's not terribly hard.

Stick a flathead in the slot and twist it vice prying... it will pop off.

Were you able to fix your sunroof switch housing or find an affordable replacement?
