Having installed aux cable recently, had the trim removal tool and knowledge. 3 steps. 1-Remove shift **** (pay close attention to position of internal plunger) w/ 2 screws. 2-Use trim removal tool to pry up console piece over shifter (then un-plug seat heater switches). 3-Remove black shifter cover by carefully prying open 4 tabs in in each corner (lift while prying). Now you'll see the bulb and socket. Twist the socket 1/4 turn, then slide toward drivers seat. Repeat to re-install.
O'Reilly stocks (or can get in a day) oem bulb ($3 for 10?). I wanted brighter, so ordered brightest LED from superbrightleds.com https://www.superbrightleds.com/vehi...1403&year=2006
. Also added HD foil to bottom of illuminator cup to increase reflection. I was told LED's can be +/- specific, so be sure to check that bulb comes on before re-installing trim pieces (insert bulb, turn key to on position, turn on headlights & replace shifter ****/shift to reverse [doesn't come on in park]). If bulb doesn't light, pull it out of socket, rotate 180 degrees, then re-insert.
