Hi you will need to pull off the centre control knob , the one that controls the fan speed, the bulb is behind there, it is a push fit bulb that pulls out and pushes back in.

Hdo you replace the bulb for the heater controls in a 2000 Ford Escort ZX2?

remove the heater controls if you dont see bulbs from behind you will need to open up the unit. once you open the unit you will see small tiny bulbs. just replace them. sometimes small screw driver is needed to remove face if there are no bolts and use caution with the tabs.. they break very easy if you attempt to force it.

Hi my name is eddie the heater blower little lights on the dash have gone out and my mirror light has gone out to

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?

If I remember rightly, on a mark 4 golf2_bing.gif, the middle of the three heater control knobs pulls off. The bulb is right in behind it and lights up the whole panel. I would think a Jetta will be the same. give it a try.

You need to replace the bulbs behind the heater control. The bulbs have rather large filaments, and hitting the control sometimes makes the filaments "weld themselves" back together for a short time. I would not suspect a short or a loose wire.

No lights on heater/fan panel.

Yes, there is illumination behind the heater control panel.

You need to remove the center inst cluster upper (radio) & lower finish (heater) panels to gain access to the heater control; the light socket is behind the heater panel.
