Puddle/Door bulb change

Hey boyz and girlz,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with the removal process of the door lights (the ones that light up at your feet when you open the door).

I just bought a few led w5w bulbs and wanna try them. I checked the manual regarding this topic but it's kinda confusing. On the drawing it seems like that you have to lift it from the "inner side" (points to the dashboard), but i can clearly see a hatch on the other side (pointing to the edge of the door) that looks like an intended opening for a screwdriver.

I read somewhere that it easily breaks if you don't start on the right side so I'm not risking it.

Could some of you please point out where should I lift the assembly?

Regards

Re: Puddle/Door bulb change

funnily enough, my door panel is next to me. There is a cutout at the speaker end, that has the clip for the light.
Your arrow for the screwdriver, use that after the light housing is loose from the door panel if it looks right (can't remember, and my light housing isn't next to me.)
