For you blinker bulbs and others you may need to replace.



How to remove the cluster:

Heater Control Panel Removal/Installation

NOTE:


When prying with a flat-tip screwdriver, wrap it with protective tape, and apply protective tape around the related pants, to prevent damage.
Take care not to scratch the dashboard and related parts.





Gently pry up on the heater control panel (A) to detach the clips (B, C) and to release the hooks (D), then pull out the panel.
Disconnect the climate control unit connector (E), then remove the panel





Now how to get to the bulb itself:


Climate Control Unit Bulb Replacement



Discharge the static electricity (which accumulated on you when you removed the climate control unit) by touching the door striker or other body parts.






Remove the self-tapping screws, then carefully separate the climate control unit to the display (A) and the control unit (B). Do not kink or pull on the wires between the display and the control unit. Do not touch the electronic components on the printed circuit board in the control unit.




Remove the bulb(s) with a flat-tip screwdriver.
Install the bulb in the reverse order of removal

Dissregard the removal of the ****. You shouldn't need to do that.

Yes, nicely done my man! I've had my new car for about 7 weeks now and have been too lazy to do this...now maybe I'll get off my *** and do it.

Ohio FTW!

I know this is unrelated but does anyone know where I can find just the turning ***** for the climate control as one of them were broken/missing when I bought my 2002 RSX. I looked all over amazon, eBay and other places online with no luck. I was told that you could easily find them but so far, no luck!

Could someone provide the Honda Item number to those two light bulbs? I'm pretty sure there are 2 kinds here and I only know the one that comes in a pair.
