you need to remove center dash assembly to unscrew the heater control assembly once you pull out the heater control assembly you should have access to the rear where the tiny bulb is and you will need the number marked on it or in your owners manual in specs lights some auto parts dont have the same size since there are many models and sizes you might have to buy from dealer and they have to order so look around to find one
The brake light issue isn't likely the the brake switch (since it sounds like your other brake lights are working properly). It's likely a bulb in the third brake light. When the filaments get old they sometimes lose and regain contact as the car vibrates on the road. Change the bilbs and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, look for a bad wire connection around the third brake light. Also, have someone verify the third brake light isn't working from the back of the car when you see the alert, it could be a bad sensor.
Behind the center knob for the heater controls there is a single small bulb that lights the whole heater control.
Move the switch to the vertical position, move the gear shift out of the way(shift to D or 1 with engine off, and set the parking brake). Use a pair of pliers with a rag to protect the knob and pull the center knob out. The bulb is directly behind it. The best way to remove and replace the bulb is with a piece of rubber vacuum hose. Gently push the hose over the bulb, then pull, the bulb should come out stuck in the hose.
You can install the same way, push the bulb in, then gently pull and twist the hose to release.
Be careful to align the bulb to its socket. If the knob is vertical the taper of the bulb base should also be vertical.
Then just push the knob back on, remembering that it is aligned to a vertical position.
Need more info on the mirror light. You mean the light in the mirror switch?
Also check the light bulbs in the 3rd brake light. If they are out (burned out or removed) the brake lights will remain on. I found this out by trial and error. I replaced the brake switch, tested voltages also and everyone told me that the 3rd brake lights should have nothing to do with it. But the do, don't know how or why, ford dealer wanted to charge me $86 for diagnositcs and $70 for complete 3rd brake assembly. Went to Napa and got bulbs for $5.00 (5 bulbs) and everything works now. Also this causes the cruse control not to work.
Look above your brake pedal and you will see your brake switch up along your brake pedal arm. It will either be
between the brake arm and the firewall so when you brake it pushes the
switch in. Or it will be between the dash and the brake arm so when you
brake it pulls the switch out. Most likely this switch needs to be replaced
