Map Light Bulb - How to get to it?

So while looking at a pre-departure checklist last night, my drivers side map light burned out. Does anyone know how to get into the unit to replace the bulb? My "trifocals" and I have studied this light for 30 minutes and I see no "obvious" way to get the lens out. As always - thanks - travel safe!

If you have the same mechanism as I do, the back of the lamp twists and has three positions: on, off, open. Twist past "off" and the back can be pulled off giving you access to the lamp.

Yours may not be the same, but on my map light there is a third position on the control. On, Off and the extra position at the "counterclockwise end" of the control range. It's a little "stiffer" to turn to that position.

When you do that the knob comes right off and you remove a single screw and the bulb comes right out.

HTH

Boowho??

EDIT: Oops, kingwood beat me to it, sorry!!
