Does anybody have experience at replacing the bulb behind the heating fan control on the dashboard of a 1998 Subaru Legacy 2.5?

Yes. Many of us. Myself included.

Go to the archives <a href="http://pub1.ezboard.com/fultimatesubarumessageboardsfrm6.showMessage?topicID=46.topic" target="top">here</a>. Lots of good info. There are also other links around. Scoobymods in another.

Just did this on Sadie's 95 Legacy, thanks to CincyBuckeye and Russ for writing these up.
Having both writeups let me decide which bulbs and which procedure to use and I liked that.


I went with the Radio Shack bulbs and bic pen pieces on this and its great, $3.25 in parts and I have a spare bulb now for later since they come in 2 pks.

To All: Removing cable at the vent end is a great tip. To make replacement easier, attach a 3-5 foot piece of flexible wire, heavy fish line or nylon cord to the end you disconnected. Be sure to cover the connection with tape if it could hang up on anything. You can still get the control unit out to replace the bulbs but you will have an easier time getting the disconnected end back in place by just pulling on your "fish" line.

Are the heated seat buttons back lit?

Yes... You'll need the Radio Shack 7219 bulb to replace it. The link I gave up above has a couple of posts about opening up the switch and replacing the bulb.
