Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
A. how do i change the little light bulbs that provide backlighting for the dashboard of my '04 Elantra? It is model GLS - std. 4 dr sedan.
Do i have to remove the dashboard? go at it from the bottom?
B. How do I change backlight on the fan switch control (inside the car - part of the heater/AC controls) ?
Trying to do the same on my 01. ready to change the bulb but can't find it anywhere.
anyhow, here's how you do it:
remove the dash by taking out 2 screws behind the ashtray and 2 above the instrument cluster
begin prying off the dash from the ashtray up, when you reach the heater vents stop. next take a flat head screwdriver and pry off the dash from the left side with the door open. work left to right till you reach the heater vents and it'll come right off. you don't necessarily have to unplug any of the electric connectors if you don't want to, but you;ll have to reach around the dash while working. all you need to do now is remove the heater control unit via the 4 screws around it, then unplug the electric harnesses from the back of it. make sure you remember which goes where. the bulbs are the 3 white (or is it 2 white and 1 grey) circles on the back of the control unit. just turn them with a flathead screwdriver and turn it over and give it a little bump to get 'em to fall out (or grab 'em with a needle nose pliers if necessary). anyhow, that's how it's done, question is, where do ya find the bulbs?
