How do I change interior dome bulb?

Hi all, I picked up my 2002 R170 230 today. The only thing amiss on the car (so far, fingers crossed), is the passenger side interior bulb is out. Have done a search and seen the dome unit out but can't find out how to get the dome unit out? Would any of you wonderful people be able to to tell me how?

Cheers Jack

Here you go:

Basically you carefully pop the clear covering with smth like a flat head screwdriver. Then, use Philips screw driver to remove two screws. Then there are two metal pins towards the back of the car right on the base of the dome light assembly. You can see it on both sides from this picture:

These seem to be favorite to stuck up in there. Carefully jiggle wiggle it and again use a small flat head screw driver to sort of squeeze them so the dome light assembly comes out. From there it's easier to access both of the bulbs. You simply unscrew the plastic holder from the top (you can see one brown on the left and a hole on the right since it was removed from there), replace the bulb and screw it back in Put it back together! You're Done!

P.S. I put 2 LED ones in there. Or what a brightness change!!! You should see it! These are the ones I used. Picture taken from Ebay =)
