Sorry, search wasn't helping. The bulb(s) behind the HVAC are out. I believe it is behind one of the knobs and it illuminates everything. Does anyone have any info on this? Is the part number on the bulb 3BO-919-243A (got that out of the info section for vents)?

Thanx

HVAC, haha, funny way to describe AC. You can call liberty up and ask them about it, they should be able to hook you up price wise...

Which knob is the bulb behind? I know they're a bear to get off so I want to pull the correct one.

Thanx

The center, fan speed control knob.

They aren't a bear, though. Get a pair of pliers and a rag, grab on with the pliers while using the rag to keep from hurting the plastic knob, and pull straight out.

Get the bulb out, and replace it.

The end.

The slot for the bulb is vertical, not horizontal.

Thanx Sharky. I owe you 2 now. Got the CD Changer put in the NB. Had to take the adaptor off the plug that was in the center console. Fits nice. Dam* system sounds better than my Passat.

I know that's what it is called... I just haven't heard it used that often... usually people just refer to it as "AC". Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning is a bit more long winded...
