    Good god this was a bitch, but I have pics in my gallery of the whole process. See numbered pix titled CDash removeal and Temp Cntrl.

    Basically, you have to remove the entire white temp control unit form the center dash, take that apart, and then work from the back of that. The brown things are the twist-lock bulbs. I think they are $9 each.
