HELP! LED Interior Mess (Pics)

Please help!

I bought a LED interior lighting kit from HighPerformanceBulb for my 2011 E91 Sport wagon and I'm having some major issues.

1. The front center dome light socket was pushed in to hard and it popped into the center dome light and I can't reach it. I need to remove the entire dome light but I don't know - does ANYONE know how to remove it (see pics)

2. The passenger map lights. I removed the frosted lens but I still cannot pull out the bulb (fat fingers?). I need to remove the entire map light - any help here would be appreciated.

Mark,
Not that it may be your exact model BMW, but this thread helped me, and actually if you skip down past all the posted pics, there is a post that details a much better way to get the dome housing down so you can get at the bulb sockets from the back. Look for the comments concerning the removal of the screws holding the visor clips on.

Good luck,
Jim

Thanks Jim. I tried the sunvisor but ultimately chose the nail hook. The nail hook way was extremely easy.
