I tried but unable to remove the map Len cover. Is seems to be abit different.
Really? I did not know that they changed the map light housing from one year to another. I have a 2019 CHR XLE and the map light housing was exactly the same as in the video. Now I am curious. How are they different? In any event, a little encouragement with a trim removal tool should do the trick.

Where you able to remove the map lens cover? I'm having the same issue w/my 2020. I viewed numerous videos and well something doesn't seem right.
Hello :) I just bought a 2021 C-HR here in the US.
After an hour of watching videos and struggling with this,

I removed the whole housing by using removal tool towards the back of the triangle closest to the windshield.
The housing is held on by 3 snap in connectors, 2 at the bottom and 1 at the top,
Pull from botton, and swing the assembly down. Very easy
Remove cable harness
Flip over
Remove silver screws to release lens cover (MUCH different than previous years)
Replace bulbs
Reverse process

This took about 10 min start to finish after I determined this was not the same by every video on youtube.

Hope this helps.

I was afraid I was going to break the lens cover and I finally decided just to take the whole unit out to discover it has changed in the way its put together. I think its impossible to remove the lens now without taking out the whole thing.

Removing the whole unit is the way to go. I've switched out most of the stock bulbs for LEDs and the difference...visually...is significant. Next up - sound system.

I just got a 2021 C-HR, but I have to change out these yellow bulbs! It’s driving me crazy. But I’m really scared to break the housing. Can someone give a picture of where exactly to insert the tool to open it up?
