Climate control bulb size and how?

Postby cincybranr » Sat Dec 01, 2018 8:03 am

Wondering what Bulb size I need for the Climate control, and more importantly, how do I change it?

Thought maybe the size is #74/T5?

Thanks for your help!

T5 Confirmed...just pull out from that tiny socket. Nothing difficult.
I would consider replacing them to LED as well. Good luck.

Thank you so much! How do you get access to the bulb. Does the face of the climate control come off, or do you have to get behind the unit?

Behind....and be extra careful NOT to brake anything including the face panel.
If you force to remove them there are high possibility that may crack...Good luck!

Not mine and it is in Japanese but, following article may give you better idea.

Truth. The connectors will be pretty fragile - especially those connected to the HVAC control cables/sliders. (Mine are busted. I'm tempted to see if my brother in law would be willing to 3d print a couple. Dont think his current filament would deal with heat well but could always use it for mould.
