Should 2004 Cavalier's climate control knobs & power window buttons light up. ? I'd like to replace the bulb or fuse if its possible

The bulbs in the control head for the heater/ac are nor serviced by GM but I think you can purchase them at radio shack if you can get the head out and apart I am pretty sure you can replace them.

Need to install new leather knob cover

Hello, I can help you with this. With a tiny screwdriver you gently pry up on the button in the middle of the old knob. Work slowly, pry up a little at a time on the front and then the back until the button comes out. Back and forth. If you look inside you will see a snap ring, you can use snap-ring pliers to remove it or some sort of sharp pick or a screwdriver, CAUTION, when it releases it may spring into outer space never to be seen again. Then just pull the old knob off and install the new one. Good luck and if you have any other questions about this just leave a comment.

You must use a small screwdriver to pry off the button very carefully and you will see the pin and retainer. Good luck,
