Shane, you need to get a new dome light son. Mustang or explorer FTW.

I've ran both....went back to this one for the bright *** lights. Expo map lights are aimed like ****. Stang uses those sh!tty fuse lookin' bulbs that you cant get bright incandescants for. I know....i've tried. lol. Plus the bubble light gives the most output of light when the doors are open or the switch is up.


IF i order LED's for those fuse lookin' bulbs, stang is goin' back in. Map light aim is perfect.

I tired prying mine off from the front and broke the damn chrome plastic. But it gave me a reason to get a 'Contour' dome light. Same thing as a mustang dome.

yours has to be blown out my 1993 had that style and my 1994 splash and my 2000 ranger.. my 1993 is difficult but not bad.. the 1994 broke instantly it was a *****...the 2000 was simple..

i think on the older one's they put more material on the tabs
