zen: slap some cheap self-adhesive heat sinks on the resistors might solve issue permanently.
XR IX: Thanks Bob! I greatly appreciate the video, I fixed mine using this video. Note to others: after you remove the two screws from the roof, it's scary to yank out the two ears in the back, but they came straight down. Take care when you remove the unit, one of my 510 circuit board resistors actually had heated off the circuit board, and I searched on the floor and there it was. I had to take some UV glue to hold it place while I soldered it, and made sure to tin the pc board joints (not too much cause it still has to lay flush... just to make sure there was no slag) and use low wattage solder iron and fine solder . Thanks again brother :)

Val Zuniga: Nice video. I used it to learn how to remove the overhead console. However, it's my dome lamps that are burned out and needing replacement. Do you know how to accomplish this? Seems like the bulbs are not just twist out/twist in. There is something tricky about their replacement. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Markos Lindsey: Thank you. I was afraid to break something when it didn't come off easily at first. Do you know where to get the plastic/metal housing for the bulbs? Mine melted and cracked. Now, I can't find anybody that sells it, ...just the bulbs.
jtol2: Great video!! Can you show us how you remove the whole thing and put it back in?
louie coroma: hi do you have the wiring diagram for this suv
quadsrlife719: Also when taking apart the compass unit, it helps to use a flathead screwdriver to pry the two pieces apart. * be careful i broke one tab on mine but it still went together fine. and once you get them apart youll find the 2 resistors talked about in this video. i was able to sodder mine back into place and it worked fine again. only a little sodder is needed.
