New to Subaru's but so far I'm really impressed. I just picked up a 95 Legacy Wagon AWD. Are the ventilation buttons supposed to be lit up when the lights are on? If so, I imagine the drink holder has to be removed first in order to start gaining access to the back of the ventilation panel. Any tips, bulb size (if they are supposed to be lit) or warnings? Thanks in advance, I'm impressed by the wealth of information on this board.

Here is a link to a page with instructions on how to do the fix.

You can get replacement bulbs at the dealer, I don't think they were any more than $5. There are 3 bulbs in there that can be replaced at the same time, 2 short and 1 long. The dealer I went to didn't have to look them up, just went right to the shelf and grabbed them. Or, you can get some leds and replace them on the bulb bases once you take them out.

I did the fix the other month, pretty easy, I cleaned all the coffee, soda, dust etc. out of all the panels while I had it all apart.

btw, I don't want to take credit for writing the instruction page, I just have it bookmarked.
