Light behind the fan speed control went out...

...I hate to go through the whole dealer appointment thing just to get a bulb replaced, OTOH if you have to disassemble half the car to get to it.....

Unlike Toadfly, the search here works pretty well. I used it to answer your request.

I've pretty much gave up on Toadfly for any issues of substance and the lack of a search engine that works is the main reason.

again, thanks for the info. Bob made it sound pretty easy but as I don't have the tool to remove the radio properly, I might have to go the dealer route.

If you have the CD head unit it uses a standard 2.5 mm hex key.
If you have the cassette, you can get a 5 sided one from Mix man for $5.00 shipping included.

Light behind fan

I removed the three screws holding the plastic side panel, and bent the plastic back and reached-in to pull out the harness. It was very simple.
