I need to know how to change the bulb in the switches on the center console, several are burned out/not there any way to change them without replacing the entire assembly? Thanks.

Yes! there is!

and the best should only take a few minutes!
Carefully pull off the wooden plate that adorns the switches. You will see some screws, the ones around the outside perimeter are the ones you want to remove (phillips head) Pull out the black plastic panel, and you will see the little tiny itsy bitsy lightbulbs shoved into the holes into which they belong. Replace 'em and put it back together, shouldn't take more than 5 to 10 minutes.
-Have fun!

Say, I just looked at your pictures...I am curious about the A/C hose is it aftermarket? did you get it from the dealer? Reason I ask, is mine runs right across the front of the valve cover, and yours does not. (wondering if there's a reason for it) -thanks

Yes, the AC Hose has been replaced by my mechanic several times, and is aftermarket, as far as being in a different position you got me. It's very possible that he shuffled things around, ive also had people tell me the Turbocharger looks too big for the car, who know eh?
