Center console bulb replace DIY and others

Did a few searches, maybe answers are here. If so sorry same question/s being asked.

98 LX automatic with burned out center console bulb. Any DIY for replacement?

Also heater / AC control panel bulb/s out.

Doesn't look obvious to me as to how to replace these bulbs.

TIA --

Dave...

I have done the center console, you remove the rear portion first a few screws lift off, then remove the front section a few screws where the shift handle is that pulls off. Right under the indicator P R D etc there is a little wire with a bulb holder just pops out, tiny little bulb, might have to get it at the Honda dealer.

I have the same problem with the ac/heater bulb not sure about that one, or if it is even replaceable.

Thanks. I'll give what you suggested a try, although I don't recall seeing any visible screws in the center console. My daughter has the car now. I'll take a look when she brings it home.

Look for the screws and bracket behind a cut out that just snaps out.

I have a coupe, but I believe the consoles are the same. Push the 2 front seat up and look at the sides the arm rest console you will see them. the front section has 2 screws towards the back 2 towards the front. Then lift the pieces off.
