I've done it many times myself. Here is what I do:

Remove the trim that covers instrument cluster, radio, heater control unit. To do this, you must remove 2 screws from trim that are mounted at top of instrument cluster area. Next remove screws above cigarette lighter/head light switch. Now that should be all of them. Position your steering wheel all the way down. Pull off of the trim from the radio area. It is snap fitted so just give it a little tug. The part of the trim covering the instrument cluster is really tight. You have to be careful and pry the thing out while trying not to scratch the top of your steering column. It does come out eventually. Now remove heater/ac control unit. Should be a couple of screws holding it in. There are vacuum hoses and a heater control cable mounted to the back of it also, but you shouldn't have to pull the thing all of the way out. Just turn the light socket to remove it from the back of the heater/ac unit and R/R the bulb.

Where is cabin air filter located?

Back in 97 lots of models without aircon didn't have a cabin filter.

Most cars have the cabin filter located in the heater/ventilation air-box at the base of the windscreen; sometimes there is a panel that needs removing and sometimes there is a flap to provide access.

Vauxhall cars of the era (they are General Motors too) often needed the removal of the glovebox to provide access to a cover retained by 2 screws. It is wise to try and get the best access possible as invariably a good vacuum cleaner will be needed to clean the filter housing and surrounding area while replacing the filter.

How do I replace heater core on Toyota Avalon

that's a big job. you have to remove the lower dash components to get access to it. You will need a warm place to do the job for sure. if you look at the dash area in front of the passengers knees and glove box area. that's where you are going to have to go in. I suggest while you are going into that area under the hood (heater hoses) I would replace the hoses while you are in there.

A/c panel lights dont work why ?

The heater control panel is sealed so you can not access the lights. They simply go out and you have to replace the panel to get lights back.

I have a dash light out on the 'dial' area that to rotate to adjust the brightness of the dash lights. How do you access this area/light? I have tries to access it from the fuse access panel on...

I have dissasembled these dashes and the switch just unplugs once you remove the bolts and screws necessary. It is a fairly easy replacement and should be a day jb.

The lights have stopped working on the heater controls on my V40. 2001 with auto A/C. Can i repair it or do I need to buy the complete unit.

The lights are just small replaceable bulbs, so to repair just replace the bulbs. It will be much cheaper and it helps save the planet. Perhaps it would be best when buying the bulbs from the Volvo parts desk to ask about the best way of accessing the dead ones. It used to be that the knobs would pull off and the facia would be easy to remove. I confess that my detailed knowledge in this specific area only really applies to the older Volvos

Passengers side window will not roll down - 323is how do i find out its the motor or switch without tearing the door apart. also, does anyone have insructions on removing panels on door to access motor?

if the motor doesn't work even from the switch from the driver's side the problem is from the motor.
to replace it you need to take out the door panel:

take out the switch with a screwdriver
by that you can get access to one of the screws that hold the panel
take out the plastic caps from the lower area of the armrest, there are some more screws
take out the plastic trim from top of panel begining from the end of panel, and unscrew the 2 more screws
it should come out after doing all that
remember to disconnect the door latch cable and speaker wiers

Clicking noise from temperature control panel and no heat coming out

If the clicking is only when you have moved the heater lever to the "hot" end and not when it is on the "cold" end, and it sounds like it is coming from under the middle of the dash, I would suggest that the problem is either the vent actuator or the vent connection to it. I hope for your sake the vent is not broken because that means not only does the central dash module have to come out to access the actuator, but you willl also have to remove the heater core to get to the vent section and replace it. I am in the process of doing that myself! If you tear it down to the actuator and remove it, get a flshlight and check the female end ( the vent ) and see if it has broken out on one or more sides. If it has you'll have to replace it because the actuator will just spin without moving the vent. Good luck!
