I have a 1997 Legacy GT wagon and the lights for the heater controls have gone out. The one on the temperature slider is working but the ones that tell what vents are open have stopped working.

Does anyone know how to change them out and what type of bulbs it takes? Subaru only or something that I can get at the auto parts store.

Thank you,

Make a search with "heater light bulbs" and you'll find lots of info. Much discussed topic here.

After I posted my question I checked out some of the links and I just got done replacing all three bulbs

It took about 20 minutes and cost about $15.00.

The suggestion to remove the cable from the heat control down in the passenger side foot well was great. Much easier.

This is the best website. Thanks to all who share there knowledge.
