How do I drop the roof panel? Is there a diy for this?
You need to remove the snap-in clips that hold the sun visors to the roof (close to the dome light). Using a hook tool open the flaps, access the torx screws and remove. Open the sunroof and pull the rubber moulding back from the roof, just enough to reach inside and release the two clips on the front of the dome assembly near the windshield. It's tight, just feel around for the two metal clips similar to what you would find on the center dome light assembly. The dome assembly will drop from the front near the windshield, disconnect all of the wired connections, this will make it a lot easier to swap out the bulbs when the housing is removed from the vehicle.
