OEM fog light switch bulb out?

My fog light switch no longer illuminates with the rest of my dash.

Does anyone know if the the little incandescent bulb in the 2nd gen fog light is replaceable, or is it possibly tied to a fuse in the fuse box or anywhere else. ( i checked the fuse box and all were good).

Or am i just going to shell out 50 or 60 bucks for new one?

its indeed replaceable....pop out the switch, and I think 1 plastic screw/retainer holds in the bulb.

Mine was replaced when it died 3 months after I had the truck and it cost me nothing.

have u tried thumping the lower dash below the switches a little?

x2. This is a bad picture but you can see the little brown circle, that is the bulb. It pops out with a flat head screw driver (just unscrew it and pop a new one in it's place).

Is there any tricks to "popping out" the fog lamp switch?

Where can I get the replacement bulbs for that switch? Is that something that they would have at an Auto Parts Store?

Follow this link. The fellow does a pretty good job of explaining it.

I guess it's off to my local Toyota parts counter! For some reason that switch is impossible to find in the dark with the bulb burned out.
