As mentioned, good writeup on 20v.org. They really just kind of push out
from behind the console, which requires taking off the side panel(s). Be
gentle, I recommend warmer ambient temperatures for disassembly, if you
have a choice, for reduced old-plastic brittleness. Actually the seat
heater switches are mini-bulbs that need to be soldered (can get from Radio
Shack), and the other pushbutton switches have socketed small bulbs you get
from the dealer or good parts source. No LEDs involved unless you are
