It's just a 194 wedge bulb in there. Remove the screws on both sides of the lower centre console as illustrated here.


Then with the armrest console lid open, stick your finger into the top of the hole for the parking brake. pull directly up and it should free up. There are 2 screw on the bottom of the shifter, remove them and carefully loft the shift knob off. Once you have that done, notice the 4 retaining clips aloong the edge of the shifter panel, carefully pry them back to get the shifter plate to come off. the bulb is under there.

As for the chrome plate, you might want to reconsider that as you are basically putting a mirror on an area which gets a lot of direct sunlight and run the risk of dazzling yourself while driving.

not so much, my first set of rims were 17" special order ones. They were a little heavier than the 16", but it was hardly noticable. I still use the 16" as my winter rims. now if you go 20", that is a different story, you notice a drop in pickup and braking power as the turck has to work harder to get the additional weight moving and stopped.
