Hey,

I hope this is the right forum.. anyway..

Just a quick question regarding the globe that lights up the climate control display module. Is it just a regular 3mm bulb or is it something else ?? Mine has blown so am looking for a replacement and don't really want to dismantle the dash just to see what globe it is.

An auto-electrician friend of my dad reckons that it is a rare bulb and he would have to do it himself for $$ :roll:

So what do you guys think ? :)

Cheers

Nope. You'll probably do more damage if you try to do it with out removing the facia!
I just replaced the globe in my antenna height switch, I had to take the facia off for that. The globe in that switch and the rear demist switch cost over $11.00 each :shock: That's after I beat it down from retail...

Its a T-10 (10mm wedge) bulb, 3w or a 5w will do the job.

5w will light it up nicely.

But yes, you do have to take the dash surround off, and the CC module out.
