Hi:

The plastic lens has two tabs on it. It you gently squeeze it or pry it with a small pocket screwdriver, it will pop off and give you access to the bulb.

Reply to dugan50's Post: I did not see any tabs like that diagram. This is a 2001 Dodge ram 2500 and there are 2 small dome lights on each side.
Sorry, I was talking about the center light. Here's a picture of the side lamps. they just squeeze out

No offense but that diagram is nothing like the dome lights in my truck. There is a garage door holder & sunglass holder then the lights are on either side. Oh well I will just take it in to have it changed. Thanks.
OK. We're talking about map & courtesy lights, not dome lights. Last try....how about this?

Insert a long, narrow, flat-bladed tool between the curved (outboard) edge of the reading and courtesy lamp lens and the overhead console housing.

Gently pry inward and downward against the lens until the latch tab in the center of the outboard edge of the reading and courtesy lamp lens is disengaged from the overhead console housing.

Pull firmly on the lens toward the outboard side of the vehicle to disengage the two pivot tabs on the inboard edge of the reading and courtesy lamp lens are disengaged from the overhead console housing.

Remove the reading and courtesy lamp lens from the overhead console housing.graphic
