SOURCE: replacing gear shifter light bulb

As a warning, this is a little difficult and requires some patience. I just had to do with to my 2000 accord, and I'm betting the process is very similar for your '98 model. Before starting, you're going to want to get a Phillips head screw driver and a pair of pointy needle-nose pliers. The first thing you'll want to pop off it the driver's side fuse box cover. Under that you should see two screws towards the bottom that hold on the plastic trim that covers the underside of the steering column. This was held along the top with a few pins that should pop lose with a little effort (not too much force though!). There is one screw holding this piece in on the other side (holding it into the center console) but you wouldn’t need to remove this, you just need to get behind this piece of trim. Behind it, you should see two screws holding in the piece of trim that covers the side of the shifter. Take those out and it'll give you the little bit of wiggle room you're going to need. Lastly, pop off the black trim around the shifter. All you'll need to do is put something flat under it and gently pull up, working your way around it. This should pull off relatively easily. You should see the two wires leading to the bulb that will be located right in the middle on the driver's side. What you'll need to do is wiggle you're hand up under the side of the plastic side trim and grab the bulb. It will take a quarter turn to loosen it. Put the new bulb you have in the socket, wiggle it back in its proper place (don't forget to give it a quarter turn again to lock it in) and you should be set. Make sure you test the bulb before putting everything back together! I’m sure something doesn’t make complete sense in here, so if you need any clarification on anything in here, let me know!

Welcome to Fixya

Carefully remove the gearshift trim with a tool (screwdriver covered with tape to prevent scratching). With the trim removed (first picture) you can now see the wires to the light bulb socket. To access the socket, lift up the top of the console by inserting the screwdriver and prying. Pry at the four tabs. Note the back of the console top can be left in place. Here's the link with pictures for better understanding.
Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: How to remove the center console cover on a 2005

I don't have the answer for you but you can search the web for information about adjusting the parking brake as that also requires removing the center console. I'm under the impression that interior trim removal type tools may be helpful so as to not ding things up.

Bulb out in center console


You are correct, there is a bulb light lights only the center console...you will need to pull up on the shifter in order to gain access to the bulb...you don't always have to remove the shift knob to gain access to the bulb holder...if you need to remove the knob...pull the shift lever all the way down to low gear...this should best expose the rear of the knob...you should see a u clip that needs to be removed...(needle nose pliers) in order to lift the knob off...to reinstall just put the knob back in place...the u clip must be re-installed to hold the knob on...Hope this helps.

I have an automatic gear shift console light bulb that needs replacement. It's a 1998 Toyota Corolla. I already removed the two side screws and two compartment bolts to get the two console pieces apart....


That is a very tough bulb to replace. Once you get the center console pieces out of the way there should be a couple of screws or blots that hold down the trim around the gear shift. Remove those and lift gentley. You will barley be able to access the bulb. but it can be done.

Used toyota corolla 96' gear shifter light


There is a bulb under the shifter. It is probably burned out.

You need to purchase a number 194 bulb at an auto parts store. Next, you need to remove the entire center console to gain access to the socket that holds the bulb. This is fairly easy. After the console is removed, look under the shifter assembly to locate the socket.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.

Please respond if you have any further questions.
