Backlight's for Dash Instrument Buttons..How to Replace?
Posted 08 July 2004 - 07:36 PM
I am now living in Florida working for Walt Disney Imagineering doing all sorts of magical stuff :-)
Will be back in CT in January as I am taking this semester off from my studies.
Anyways, I couldn't find anything about htis in the forums, however i am sure I am just not looking hard enough. I left my Chilton Manual at home...like an idiot...and now I am looking to replace the backlight bulbs for the rear defroster button, as well as the hazard light button both on the dash of my 1993 Legacy Wagon. Any idea on how to do this?

Currently my Rear Defrost button is out, as well as the hazard light switch...well...I think it's out...it's always been out however I think it is suppossed to light up!
Let me know if someone can help me through this process!

Once out, you undo the bulbs with a flatblade, they move about 90 degrees and will then be ready to be pulled out.
The Hazard light switch, I will assume is just right of the center air vents. THIS is a pain, it's screwed into the dash, from behind. Really, the whole dash needs to come out for proper access. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
If you have small hands and acute manual dexterity, you might be able to get in via the air vents. The central air vents are pressed into the dash, and can be pulled out. With a short philips screwdriver you might be able to get the switch out. Good luck!

When you refer to the housing assembly, do you mena the lower portion of the button itself? Or do you mean the plastic that surrounds the button...hopefully that makes sense!

The assembly will come out before the button, so it'll make sense.
