    Lost my back lights on the band/cd button on my stock radio the other night. The rest of the buttons and switches all light up. Of course it is the button I've used the most over the past 5 years. Anyways being anal, is it a real pain to replace bulbs? or should I just live with it? Just curious if anyone else had done any bulb replacing. All the other dash lights work on everything.

    Related question, I've lost the lights behind a couple of the HVAC buttons, like the rear defrost. Any way to replace it?

    I know this sounds really stupid but i "had" the same problem with my radio where i lost most of the lights. Till one day my friend decide to punch my radio to see if the lights came back on.....well they did. I don't recommend going out and giving it a good punch but maybe a tap.
