For the interior light:

For the heater controls:

Don't try to take the panel off (the clips break all too easily). Instead take out the stereo, then use a mirror to look down the back, the bulbs can be extracted from behind by gently pulling on the wires.

Not (always) true: on my 1.3mjt there is no way to remove the bulb from behind due to air flap command cable, I had to completely remove and open the unit, which by the way came off easily without breaking anything ;-) Car is a 2009.

Re: bulb replacement

That's interesting, I wasn't aware of the problem with the cable. Wonder if it makes a difference having AC (the one in the guide, like mine, doesn't), or if something changed in the design of the later models?

Re: bulb replacement

Don't know if it's by design or only because of AC, which btw equipped my car...
