997 interior lights

Sorry for the trivial question, but some of my interior lights have blown and I need to replace them.
 
1) Luggage compartment - easy to access and change but I lost the bulb that came out - does anyone have a spec. or part number for it?
 
2) Interior dome light. Any tips on how to remove the light cover? I don't want to break it. Also need a spec. or part number so I can just change it only removing the light cover once
 
3) Passenger footwell - ditto.
 
I have RTFM! It doesn't (as far as I can see) list the bulb types for the interior lights.

Hi berin,
The interior light should come out as follows. There are two oval shaped covers, these pop off with a small flat screwdriver OR a plastic trim tool. They're very easy to remove. There's two screws underneath and are all that secures the entire plastic section that the lights reside in. At the front/top part, nearest the centre of the car, you need pull down the plastic or prise between the plastic section and the roof. There's two pop clips one at either side that hold it securely.  This allows the front to drop down. Nearest the glass the plastic section is attached via two hooks, simply push the plastic forward to release the entire thing. 
I can't help with the bulbs as I bought a LED set from ebay to replace all the bulbs.

Thanks for that! I worked it out anyway, but it was a bit nerve racking!

No probs. It's always nerve wracking messing with plastics.
