The entire Climate Control portion is totally dark... Speed knob, Temp knob, Vents knob, A/C button, and Recirculate button. I tried searching for past posts, but I didn't really find one about this specific part of the dash. Any chance this could be just a fuse, or is it definitely the bulb(s)?

I have the same problem. I thought it might be the bulbs, so I went to the parts guy at the VW dealer to see how much they are. Part # N-017-751-2. $1.32 each. He said it might be more than just the bulbs. That's coming from a parts guy, not a machanic.

there's a led behind the middle dial. put it to the 12 o'clock position and pull out the dial, and you'll be able to swap out the led.

Update:
The dealership fixed mine for free just a few months ago ONLY b/c they unexpectedly needed to keep my car overnight for a different repair. Well, it's out again. I'm starting to think this recurrent problem involves a bad fuse or bad wiring on VW's part. :mad:

I just started experiencing the same problem last week. The climate control lights would go out once in a while, and come back after I tapped on the knobs. Eventually, they just went out for good. I'm taking the car in for service next week, so I'll get to find out what's up.

Well I just pulled off the center knob and the light bulb just rolled out with it. It was completely loose, just fell out of its socket. So I put it back into place and BLADOW we've got redness again! :thumbup:

My question is I can't seem to get the light out. (stuck firmly) Should I concentrate on just the bulb, or does the white socket come with it. Any ideas to make this easier?
