Question Rear interior light

How on Earth do you get it open? I think the bulb's blown in mine, and I want to replace it (gets awful dark in the back there without it!), but I can't figure out how to get into it, and i'm terrified of ripping the ceiling lining by being too heavy-handed.

Any ideas?

DIAMOND, Strong enough to cut glass. Must be a UK expression you aren't aware of.

Well, whether you've got four equal sides or not, your advice allowed me to pop the cover off my light tonight and discover that the reason it's not illuminating is because there's no bulb in there!

So I have now ordered a snazzy li'l green LED to pop in there. Pictures will be forthcoming...

Ok, got the LED I ordered, but alas, it doesn't fit! Emailed the company and explained there seemed to be some confusion, as the light they'd sent me didn't fit. They mailed me back saying it's the correct one. I've now mailed back to them explaining that the light they've sent me is a small, push-in type like a large Xmas tree bulb, whereas I actually need a long, household fuse-type bulb.

Does anyone know the part number for an '01 interior bulb? It looks like they've sent me a light for an '06, and I have a feeling they don't want to 'fess up!

The 2001 Owners Manual calls for a T579 bulb, which may be hard to find. On one forum, someone suggested that they use a 912 which supposed to work.
