I was curious about changing the color of the lights in the HVAC controls a while back. After a few weeks now I noticed that the right side of it is dead at night, while the left is perfectly lit up.



I'm gonna wait until I can get it to my shop 80 over Thanksgiving to dissasemble the whole thing to see if I can swap out those bulbs for new ones. Or maybe I can cut a deal with one of the local service guys @ Dodge.

Well, next I'm thinking when I have a day off I'll remove the whole unit and take it apart again. I only had the buttons and the face-plate off, so next is getting off the light-distribution plate (the big piece of 1/8" plastic that covers the lights).

Then if I can get the bulbs out, change them.

As for the cluster, that's another story. That requires removal of a good portion of the dash, but I would assume it be the same idea as above, to get at the bulbs to change them.
