Wanted to see if anyone has replaced the lights behind the heating and cooling controls on a hard dash. It looks like there are two screws holding the plastic fascia in place.

Does this just pull straight off and the bulbs are right behind? My main concern is taking out the screws, pulling it off, and it disconnects all the connections to opening/closing vents, etc. Only the right side is burnt out on mine (circled in the pic).

Yes I have replaced the lights in this part
When you remove it do not pull the connectors out of the back they are usually brittle and will brake
They all go to a connector plug
And fit in holes in the fachia...
You have to pry the back off the part
Gently to get to the bulbs...
Replace them then glue it back together
You will have to pull the switch heads off also
A good tug will get them off

Thanks! This is really helpful and the pics are great. Hopefully I'll get to pulling this apart over the weekend.

I was having trouble getting the black backing off without any of it cracking, so tried slipping a very small flathead under the light holders. I was able to pop them off without any breakage and replace the bulbs with no issues. Thanks again for the guide and pics, Mikieman.

Getting it done and working is the important thing...
Not breaking anything is a big plus...
