radio & climate control illumination - '98 Legacy

Just bought a used '98 Legacy wagon and trying to figure out how to fix the rear illumination on the climate controls and the radio.

The radio bulbs are basically the same idea, just require a bit more effort to get to them, and the radio bulbs don't have the little plastic twist-off bulb holders. If you can solder and keep track of miniature screws, you can do the job. The radio shack bulbs will work just fine, the oem bulbs have wrappers on them to change the color, unsolder, swap wrappers and re-solder the new ones in. Getting to them is the hard part as has been already mentioned, requiring removal of the metal bezel around the lcd screen in some versions. If you are tempted to switch to LED's to get longer life, only do so with the absolute brightest versions.
