Just attempted to replace the bulbs have a problem getting a grip on the bulbs and pulling them out with my big fingers. Any suggestions on gripping them without it breaking?

Yeah!! Home Depot sells some soft clear polyethylene tubing in the plumbing dept. that is really flexibile. You'll need to find some that is the right size (maybe 3/8") and push it over the bulb. It will come right out.:tu:
The problem is you'll need about 2" of it and I think it comes in 10' lengths.:(

I just pulled the bulbs out of the dome light & map light. They are # 168 bulbs, small wedge type. I had to remove the overhead console and twist out the holder to get to the bulb. I am going to try some led lights in these places.
Good luck.

Thanks. I had a few feet of left over 1/2" ID polyethyelene tubing I used for A/C drainage. It worked great Rep points sent.
