How to replace the light bulbs behind the dashboard?

    I have a 2001 Honda Civic LX 2 door coupe.
    There are three dials next to the radio.
    Mode Control Dial
    Temperature Control Dial
    Fan Control Dial
    When the headlights are turned on, the three dials light up (nomally).
    However, now, the Temperature Control Dial is half lit, and the
    Fan Control Dial is not lit at all. The Mode Control Dial is fully lit
    as usual. My assumption is that there are two light bulbs for these
    three dials, and the bottom bulb is broken.
    Can I replace the light bulb myself without too much trouble,
    or does this need to be taken into the shop?

    you just have to remove the outside trim piece and you should be able to go
    to the auto parts store for a new bulb.

    Do a google search for the pdf (or otherwise) instructions for removing
    the stereo. You'll see that the part you're after is exposed in the
    procedure. Look at the bulb at the dealer, then see if you can find them
    at NAPA or Canadian Tire, or whatever. It will be 1/5th the price if
    it's the little bulb that looks like the tip of a thermometer.
