I`ve searched with no joy, please can someone help, my center vent ilumination lamp is working but my two side ones are not the wiring diagram says that the left and right ones should have ilumination lamps also but for the life of me i can`nt get the vents out to see how to change the globes, does someone have simple instructions on how to replace these globes. (thanks in advance)
Btw i`ve seen the 4 little tabs inside the vents, pulled and pushed them but they do`nt seem to do anything

Those clips need to be squeezed rogether while pulled towards the center of the duct. This link should work - there is a tech discussion on removing the bulbs, and the bulb part #. Fresh air vent lite bulbs

It's a real snug fit, and for the age of your car, will require a little muscle.

The clips lift up by prying them with a flat screwdriver, but it will take a bit of effort to yank the assembly out.

Once the vent(s) are out, you will see the attached wire. You can gently pull the bulb housing out to reveal the very small vent bulb.

By the way, I haven't found replacements with the plastic covering around the bulb, so when I replaced mine, my vent dials light up like airport runway lights instead of emitting the original soft glow.
