Glove box lamp

We're on a trip and lacking resources and tools.

My SO wants me to remove the passenger side glove box lamp so she can leave the box open w/out distracting me while driving at night.

I looked at it quickly but wasn't able to remove the lamp with my fingers and didn't see anything that comes apart.

Anyone know how to get the lamp out? The owners manual didn't have anything.

How about put a piece of electrical tape over it?

Open the glove box. Squeeze the sides and it will allow you to drop the glove box down. The bulb pulls straight out. I just tried it.

This is a picture of the tabs. There is one on each side. Push inward on the areas with the ribs.
