    Hello! My first post here...

    I have just spent an hour and a half on here and TN looking for info on how to replace the lights behind my climate control dials (fan speed, temp, and settings) for my 06 Tacoma PreRunner... I cant seem to find any info! Bulb/Part #s, How to remove the dials, etc... any help would be appreciated!!

    The bulbs are replaced from behind. there are only two. From what I gather toyota does not have a part number for the bulb. I will look to see if i can find a replacement for you. I will look i think i have one working one laying around since i replaced mine with LEDs.

    Seems there are a bunch of different sizes for the same type bulb. I will have to find mine and measure it before i can fine one.

    What kind of LED's did you replace the bulbs with? Mine just burnt out, and would like to put some LED's in there instead.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    The unit itself pops off with a gentle pry from a putty knife.
    there are two bulbs, both are colored a dull orange and have a slot for a screwdriver.
    A half turn and the come out and I tried like hell to xref them at NAPA only to go to dealer and pay $9 each.
    Sux but works.
    Do not attempt to take the unit apart like I did before learning they come out with a screwdriver.
    Search for pics.

    thanks but I do know how to change lights and open up unit already. What I want to know is if a certain LED bulb will work in unit. I have a control unit with one blue led and the other one doesn't work. I bought the unit from a member here on TW and I was just curious if a certain bulb would work in my unit.
