Need procedure for hvac control unit lights
Posted 21 March 2004 - 01:15 PM
Does anyone have a link to a procedure to fix the hvac control light/led on the legacy.
I know Russ had one on his site, but it doesn't exist anymore.
Anyone else know who might have it?

Good luck... It's not hard. I've had to do it 3 times now.

The last time I did the climate control, I used the 7219 bulbs. They are smaller than the OEM replacements (which, I think have been enlarged from the very first ones I took out), so the green sleeve would not fit. As a result, I have 'white' climate control buttons instead of green, and they are a bit brighter as a result. Actually, I like the slight increase in brightness as I felt that the climate control was a little dim compared to the rest of the dash previously.

This time I bought the little microbulbs from RadioCrap (number is in other posts) and changed the old one out. I think you don't have to deal with the little cover as the bezel in the switch is green.

I actually did mine about 3yrs ago using the radio shack bulbs and they haven't failed yet, including two winters in NY state, so I would definitely recommend the radio shack bulbs if anyone has experienced that the OEM ones keep burning.
I needed the procedure for a colleague who just got his first legacy and found (of course) that his hvac control didn't light-up.
