Interior light Question

Just in the process of replacing the tiny light bulb on the headlight switch. I didn't even realize it was suppose to light up until I read about it in the 101 projects book. Great read. Does anyone know if the cig. lighter has a tiny bulb as well and if so how do I go about getting at it.

yes it does have a small bulb around the outside ring i think you can get to it by removing the panel next to the lighter

You may also have a bulb as part of the forward most ashtray so that it lights up. I took a blown bulb out of there but haven't since replaced it. I'm not sure what the US models look like in terms of the lower centre console and armrest area.
