SOURCE: Clock light burned out

You will need to pull the clock, the bulb is on the back, any parts store will carry it, it is a mini peanut bulb.

SOURCE: have a 2007 mercury milan and the blower does not

Try disconnecting the wires to the blower motor before you put in another fuse. If the new fuse does not blow you need to replace the blower motor.

SOURCE: paint removed from vent trim on dash

these vents should snap in. If you look closely at the inside of the vent, there should be either two U shaped cuts on either side with the bottom of the U facing you, or maybey a couple of metal tabs. Either way, you should be able to place a precision screwdiver into the tab and pry it inward on one side then gently pull that side to you. It should rock outwards and come out of the dash if you pull it to the side you took out first. Let me know if this helps :)

SOURCE: 2009 Saturn Outlook radio removal

start by carefully prying the woodgrain/brushed aluminum panel around the column shift upwards. Start at the rear, near the cubby. be very careful not to break it where the panel wraps around the drivers side of the shift indicator. when it is removed, you will see screws holding the next panel on (may be 7mm hex or philips - can't remember...) once removed, you can pry that section off as well exposing the radio and climate control screws. both have to come out to get the radio out. the XM portion is not in this radio, but is actually in the rear end of the truck behind the side panel on the driver's side. Be careful if you go poking around in there, because you may have a power inverter back there feeding 115v power to the center console (entertainment package).

Analog Clock in Ford Fusion 2009 has no more light

Remove the instrument panel center finish panel by gently pulling rearward using a small thin prying tool such as a small putty knife. This will release the spring clips. Disconnect the electrical connection to the clock. Near the top corner of the rear of the clock is a small lamp assembly that screws out. Mine had a black plastic base but the one I replaced it with had an orange base. I ordered an Audi/VW part #4A0919040C as it was substantially cheaper than what the Ford dealer wanted. When you remove the lamp, you will notice the bulb has a green skin over it. You want to try to remove it carefully so you can re-use it on the replacement lamp. The best way to describe it is that it resembles a minature condom. I soaked it in some soapy water to loosen it up and make it easier to remove. A little soap also helps when you place it on the new lamp. Replace the new lamp, re-attach the power and press the instrument panel trim back in place and you are good to go.

How do you change the clock's light bulb?

there is no clock light bulb replacement.. you may have a defective radio. The fuse for the radio controls everything. if the radio comes on and the light that your talking about is internal and not coming on then you may need to remove the radio and replace it or repair it.

Upgrading 2006 Mercury Milan's sound system with MP3 jack.

Even though your current radio has an AUX button the radio is not programmed to utilize it.
There is no 'easy' way to add the '07 Job 2 and later year model's factory Aux input.
You will need to buy an aftermarket solution. Something like this

Changing 2001 Honda Odyssey clock back light

Yes, the clock back light can be changed but unfortunately you have to remove the entire instrument cluster to do it. This can be done yourself. First order the clock light bulb from Honda (not expensive). Then get a Haynes Repair manual from an auto parts store (<$20) and a trim panel removal tool. Follow the procedures for removing the instrument cluster trim panels in chapters 11 and 12. Take your time and be patient with the panels to avoid breaking off attachment hooks and clips. The most difficult part of the job is getting the steering column trim covers off.
