I am also interested in removing the SOS button. Looking forward to your pictures and steps for removing it.
I just did this last night. I didn't take photos of the SOS removal process (totally forgot I said I would do that) however the removal is super simple. Once you remove the plastic cover, which involves removing the mirror assembly, three screws in the metal plate of the cover, and two more screws beneath the dome lights, you can lower the entire dome light assembly and you will see connections including the main connector, the dome lights on either side, the SOS button, and then one more connection (can't exactly figure out what it was for). Unplugging all of these connections frees the assembly for removal and replacement. To remove the SOS button, simply unplug it from the connection and remove it.... that's it! I have no dash lights indicating that it is not connected.
The quality of the reproduction dome light cover is sturdy. The fit is about 95%, so if you want OEM fit you will need to spend money to get an original replacement. You can see what happened when I removed my dome light cover, it basically disintegrated. I used double sided tape to secure the innards to the new dome light cover. No rattles while driving.
I repainted the cover with Colorbond Orion Gray paint but the shade is darker than it should be. It actually more closely matches the dash than it does the original light grey. I will repaint it at some point down the road once I find a better matching paint. If anyone has a source, I would love to hear about it. I also replaced all interior lights with LEDs. Since I did this project in the evening, I don't have any photos of the cover installed in the day time. I'll try to do that sometime in the next couple days.
