    One of the tiny bulbs behind my climate control is out and I can't find it in the auto parts store. Is there a place online where it can be found? I looked through the parts diagram and couldn't even find the part number.

    I figured as much but I was really hoping to avoid a trip to the dealership since I don't have much time during the day.

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    Sheesh, they are pretty specialized, and a pain to get to. I had to replace two, also.

    See my gallery for pics of how-to. See file names beginning with "TempCtrl" and "CDashRem."

    Basically, take apart center dash, then remove the temp control unit and pop that open from behind (grr) and twist them out. Great design.
