Hi,Ugh.. I was hoping Robert’s true goal there was replacement of the little ambient lights. Looking at the pics and re-reading the thread, I now see that the dome lights were part of the replacement plan. Well that is a bummer...those generic, warmer white lights are going to overshadow the other led replacements!
WOW! that can't be coincidence, Since light fixture was hard to pull out I was struggling so finally I gave up and try to push it back in that's what it blew the fuse. It's a metal frame where the light fixture is inserted, somehow it sorted it there. PDX guy at auto store gave me both sizes and glad I took smaller ones. BTW: You need needle nose plier to pull these out. There is nothing to grabI blew the same fuse when I replaced my foot well lights to LEDs. It only happened when I did the driver's side. No issue with the fuse when I replaced the passenger's side first?
Lorenzo,The ones I want to replace now are the door courtesy lights at the bottom of the door. I have a 17. Does the lens itself come out or must I remove the whole panel? I tried removing the lens, but stopped, for fear of breakage, when it resisted removal. BTW, just to add my two-bits - I replaced the hatch lights with flat, one-sided led's and the improvement was awesome, and I too wanted it to look original instead of tacked on.
The fuse box usually has spare fuses, did you check that?It is definitely worth carrying a box of spare fuses to cover all sizes. When the 3rd gen came out these tiny fuses were not widely available, although that has improved somewhat. It is really impressive how many fuses fit in each of the many fuse boxes. I hope I don't have to chase too many blown fuses...
I'll put together the links for the lamps.
I assume you are talking about the lights that few people have change to "Acura" logo projector light? If so, it is easy, insert the small flat head screw driver on the "front" side of door to loose the clip. Took me good 5 minutes to figure out which side to loose the clip on first one (afraid to break it), but once done with first one, rest were a minutes each.

Here is a pic of my lights under each of the doors. Replaced the dull halogen bulbs with projectors. Bought two different sets off Amazon— both look the same. Didn’t have issues as long as you adjust the prongs to slide into the plug correctlyI have got these on my Gen 2 MDX as well, looks pretty nice.
