replacement of AC dial light / glove box light too

How do I replace the light in the AC control dial on the left side of the instument panel?

I cant seem to find information on replacing it on the CD.

I figured out how to do that light behind the light switch, but I was trying to do the above.

Also, my glovebox light doesnt work anymore. I checked fuses and the bulb, they are good. Any ideas why I dont get voltage to the connector?

Glovebox...powered of the same fuse as the cigar lighter/radio/etc if I donīt recall wrong. Mine had a bad ground, so I made a new grounding wire to it and now it works fine.

The center vent bulb, I think you will have to remove the heater control module in teh center console as described, and then you will be able to access a bulb with black socket pressed into the center of the center vents. Same bulb as mentioned. Glass socket. Has two black wires going into the bulb holder.

Might be pictures of it in my center console removal procedure at

It's probably a bad ground for the glove box, I just slapped it a few times.

For the vent garage door closers , well you go to snap on and you buy a 2 pick sets. Stick the long pointy ones through the ears sticking out on the top and bottom. Hook the hook tool around one of the vents, and then pull the bottom out, then pull the top out, then you can change the light.

I would post pics, but I dont have a deticated server.
