I just popped the base out of mine a couple of weeks ago. Here's what you do:

1) Pop out the map light assembly. Use a small screwdriver to get it out. It comes out pretty easy There are a couple of plugs for the
lights that you need to pop off.
2) Remove the 2 torx screws holding the rest of the assembly to the roof and gently pull on it and it should come off.
3) Remove the dark foam insert.
4) Remove 1 screw holding in the base.

No problem. Let me know if you need pictures. I can post some on Saturday if needed. It only takes about 5 minutes to take the whole thing apart.

San Jose? San Jose! You did not just say San Jose! That's my home town. Lived there for 26 years. Been living out here in Illinois for the last 8. How is the land of the Sharks and the home of the Rhinos? Been over two years since I've been back. If I do get back there anytime in the near future and it's during a time when your chapter has a meet, I would really like to drop in.
