Default Rear wiper/wash switch removal.

Hi all,

I have a 2002 Dream Cruiser and I'm gradually (when the mood takes me) working through the list of snags it came with. I've noticed that the rear screen wiper/wash switch isn't illuminated but the traction control and rear screen de-mist switches are.

Two questions then really; 1. Is the switch meant to be illuminated? and, 2. How do I get it out to change the bulb?



Thanks

I have to demolish the centre consol to change a bulb?? Sounds like some of the helicopters I used to work on.

Thanks for the info; a nice Sunday morning job I think.

Here's a bulb that may work as a replacement (assuming the old bulb removes from the holder OK and the blue silicon lens remains intact):

McMaster-Carr

I got a pack of these bulbs to re-lamp my window switch. It fit the one bulb in the switch I was able to replace.

P.S. sanatanadharma, nice pictorial guide.

I'd probably just replace the switch. I replaced the rear defrost switch when the bulb in mine died. Didn't cost that much and was easier than trying to replace the damned bulb.

Thanks for the link! Glad to know it worked in the switch. I need to replace 3 of these in switches, (2 on the front window switches, 1 on the driver's side front door lock witch), 1 in the Trac Off switch and one in the rear wiper switch.

Anyone try picking these up at Radio Shack? I'm going to give them a shot.
