My ac/heater control lights will not come on unless I fool with the knobs a little bit. Sometimes they do not come on at all. Is this a common problem?

I've had this problem a lot lately. Mine is a 04 1.8t. I usually have to lightly tap it for it to come on. I hope someone has some ideas.

Mine did the same thing. You gotta pull off the middle knob and push the bulb back into the socket. Pull the knob straight out from the dash, the bulb is in the very center of the socket (it's very small).

Could you elaborate on this procedure? I tried pulling on the knob but it doesn't feel like it wants to go anywhere.:banghead: Any chance you have pics? Thanks!

did that

I did that and no change. I guess I will have to change the bulb to see if that does it.

Is there any other opinions? Loose wires? connections?
