The bulbs are inside the parts you mentioned, the units must be removed from the car, the top cover taken off and the bulb can then be replaced, these are tiny little peanut shaped bulbs, they are available at any good parts store.

3G Mitsubishi Eclipse Climate Control Light Bulb Replacement


The control panel for the heater and A/C must be removed. Suggest you get Chilton's manual from the library. It will take you through step by step with pictures. To summarize: 1) Remove trim panel covering radio and heater controls. 2) Remove radio. 3) Disconnect the two heater control cables from the control panel. The trick to removing the cables is to compress the "claw" spring holding the cable by pressing a screwdriver from the underside of the control panel to release each cable.4) Remove control panel. Take to a workbench. From the backside of the control panel at the top, notice two large holes through which you can access the V2 Toshiba bulb holders. Turn them a quarter turn to remove them and the bulbs. The bulb is a common #74 bulb.

Replace radio led display


the radio doesn't have a LED, it is a LCD, LCD display's have no light of there own, LED's do, the problem u have here is that the tiny bulb inside the radio behind the display is burned out, you need to pull the radio out and remove the top cover of the radio, right behind the display you will find a tiny twist in bulb socket, remove it and replace the bulb.

Display on climate control screen is out and i don't see any type of description on fuse panel that fits this problem. AC, heater, fan, everything else works but the display.


U must remove the climate control unit from the dash and remove the top cover of the unit, u will find a tiny twist in light bulb socket with a tiny little light bulb, this provides the backlight for the AC/heater display, u can buy the bulb at any auto parts store, couple of bucks.
