    Has anyone ever had issues with the lighting for their heat and AC adjustment knobs?

    I noticed last night that the heat/cold barely illuminates, and the fan switch (off-high) doesnt illuminate at all.

    If anyone has a link to the replacement, and the bulb types needed, that would be greatly appreciated!!!

    I don't have a link or bulb #, but here is the bulb and how to get to it. My bulb on temp control quit last year.
    Off topic: I didn't know there was a glove box light. In 16 years, I've never seen it lit. Bought a new bulb and it won't stay in the connector.

    ok. its some kind of neo-wedge. My question is....where exactly is the bulb in the dash cluster. is it in the trim piece, or behind the black plastic when you get the trim panel off, where the blenders are for the control knobs?

    Hi Kristen. I'm 99% sure that the bulbs you need are a #74. They're a miniature wedge bulb. Wish I could help more with the location, but the best I can tell is that they're going to behind the trim panel and the small panel behind the trim. Remove a few screws and the small panel should pull straight out.

    So....I posted the incorrect bulb. I purchased it from the dealership for this. My apologies ladywolf.
    I ended up taking the 5 screws out in the picture above. This is what I found:ee419114541f6ec8c517f205a2921782_dcebd114ef4ec2add2b2e664ab8eaca260bf39c8.jpg

    There are the 3 bulbs.

    I think I might just have it!

    If you haven't yet taken the 5 screws out, it's a tight fit,so take your time. Pull straight out, working it from the top, then around it. There's clips that need to release and plastic studs that can break if pulled off at an angle. Once you get that off, that's it-no need to disconnect anything.

    Just carefully roll the green rubber half way and slide it off. Reverse it all to install. Good luck and thanks

    ah sweet!!! Thank you!! I was wondering if the lights were on the back of the center dash or in the motor area. Thank you very much!

    Where did you get your service manual??

    If I remember correctly it was around 3 hundred. My wife downloaded a free manual for our tractor. Maybe that's an option for your truck.

    There's a couple things I realized might help you. Grasp the control knobs with your fingers (try not using pliers)real tight and pull straight off-no side to side or wiggling or it could easily break.
    The 4 yellow plastic clips at the end of each stud on the back need to release. There is a fifth clip at the top that needs to release 1st. Again, try not to use a screwdriver or anything. Just pull from the top of vent area.
    Anyways, one of the yellow clips popped of the stud (you can see it missing above) and was hiding from me for an hour. Thankfully, I had some help come out and we found it!1635cf5d571baebb618a440e754c5c92_1305f005c0e889c5af01439141e60c3c14884d81.jpg
    Had to take the glove box down to find it. Bad picture, but it's down in the crack.
    I really hope you get 'er done!

    What are the two light bulbs circle in red for? It tried to replace them with led bulbs but need to figure out what they're for so I can figure out if the bulbs are working or not.
