If you read the original post, you would see that the same bulbs that worked in the back seat map lights didn't work in the front.
Obviously we are not talking about the same thing. In the 03, the rear passengers reading lights are festoon bulbs. The front dome light (the one in the middle, directly above the rearview mirror) use festoon bulb. This one is easy to take off. The two map lights on the two ends of the dome light require more work. And i dont know if they use festoon or the bayonet bulbs. Maybe 97 has different design.
