It's slightly longer, right? As 31 mm vs original 29 mm in length. Just move the contacts a bit and should fit.

I swapped most of them, they are a pita, broke one light bulb got the pieces out but haven't been able to put the socket back in place new. I've been avoiding disassembling the whole thing but it seem the only way to fix my issue.

In you case I advice don't even try to turn the bulb or you will loose the socket that's exactly what I did wrong, just push it in. BTW this should be on the interior thread.

Have to physically bend one contact end. Use a long nose plier will be easier.

I wish the 2016 had those at the front dome, they are much easier to install, put one of those feston on the cargo area don't know why there is only one light bulb for the cargo area, I don't find it enough.

Located a harness attached to the underside cover on the drivers side. Appears this would be used for installed lighting.
