The dome light unit comes out as one full unit (all three lights). Wedge a thin standard screwdriver at the back/rear of the unit (between the black unit and the grey plastic headliner/roof support) (see first pic below). Then work both left and right sides of the unit with the screwdriver to lever out the back half, then the front half will slide out. The back of the unit is held with pressure by metal strips, not hooks (see second pic). Check out the pics.
The rest of the interior lights come out with the screwdriver wedge at the end (most of them) or the side. PM me if you run into any issues.
