Climate Control Bulbs broken

Okay so I was going behind my climate/heater/ac control panel or whatever you want to call it to replace those bulbs with LEDs. Well I now realize that the 194s will not go back there like i was hoping after I broke the little plastic thing the tiny bulbs are connected to after trying to get the bulb out. The plastic thing is like a circuit board type deal that the bulbs are directly connected to. So now I have a light out because I basically broke the connection to it. Does anyone know either how to fix it or where to get a part for this? If this was simply a wire I broke this wouldn't be a problem, but I guess this is a downside to owning a yota. Cheap breakable parts

It's a common problem - the climate control boards/lights going out. I had a similar problem. See my thread...

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ction-fyi.html

I was supposed to ship my old one to BamaToy1997 so he could tear it apart and try to figure out a fix...but I totally forgot to (been busy).

I ended up buying a used one for $100 from http://www.ranchotoyotatruckparts.com/
