1967 Catalina Dome light lens?


Hi all,

I feel like an absolute moron on my 67 Catalina...I have restored cars, overhauled engines..you name it..

But I just can`t get my darned interior dome light lens off to change the bulb!!??

Appears to me to be made out of glass, and not plastic like the ones I`ve dealt with before.

I have tried every prying tool I have, and I just can`t remove it without damaging something

My car is a super low miles - so it has the original lens from 67, probably original bulb too.


Any tips?

It's been a long time, but I believe it is a harder plastic. It has three tabs that inset into three slots. See if the lens moves in the fixture, back and forth, jiggle, whatever. If so take a flash light, see if you can find one of the tabs. If so, take your index and middle fingers, one on each side of the tab and squeeze inward and pull in a downward motion. That will release that tab, the rest should be easy. If this is not the case try turning the lens counter clockwise.
