A remover tool may be helpful to release the two metal clips located at the front of the map light console. Just don't start at the back as the pawls won't release until the clips are disengaged and the console moved forward.

I'm assuming that the metal clips are removable from the map lamp assembly? Contact your Infiniti dealership for new clips.

The metal clips are removable but I cannot see how they could have broken as they are sprung metal. Mine remained in the upper roof holes when I pulled it down and all I had to do was pull them out and reinstall on the consoles plastic tabs to insert it back into place.

Perhaps his plastic tabs broke? In which case, he's probably looking at a new console assembly.

@Avedis53 ...that is the only thing that makes any sense but, if pulled straight down from the windshield side, I am still unclear how anything could have gotten damaged.

I don't think the clips themselves are entirely metal but I'm not sure. The tabs on the assembly most likely are though.
