Could someone please tell me where the bulbs illuminating the heater/ac "mode", temp, & recirc controls are located at? Mine are out and I've not been able to locate instructions to replace them. Even looked at used switch assemblies on ebay but I dont' see any light sockets anywhere. THis is a '94 Eclipse.

The bulb sockets are minature in size and are either screwed on. You woul not see any wires coming out from them and if you remove the panel, you should be able to see them.

Yeah, I'd suspected that they were internal but wasn't sure enuff to pull it all apart. So are you saying that if I pull the 3 vent control and fan ****s off then remove the front panel I'll see them? Guess I'd have to pull the dash trim panel that surrounds it first. Are all the mounting screws for the HVAC panel accessible from the front or do you have to pull the whole assembly?

ManyThanks,
Roy
