IF it is the same as a '99 - blunt knife down one edge and pry out - it is tight

Map Light Removal

If I recall (w/o looking up on the internet parts site) there are tangs on the short dimension side that need to pushed in with a narrow blade. When I took mine out, you just need to get to one side and then the assembly can be removed without damage.
