Air flow directional knob light location and replacement..

Post by metaxa44 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 3:34 am

My air flow directional knob was stuck in defrost position and finally I got it to work, but now the light is out..
Where is the bulb location or how do I replace it?
Thanks

This link shows how to disassemble things. Look in Section 71-10.

You will probably need to remove all of the trim around that, including the 12v/110 panel below the HVAC knobs. Not sure if you can reach down inside with the radio removed.

OK , so I got everything apart and it wasn't too bad.
I got the bulb out too and it's burned out..
What is the correct part number for the bulb ?
Wonder how much are they...
By the way radio doesn't have to be disconnected to do the job...

I don't recall the bulb number - I'm certain another of the forum members will chime in. I suspect it's the same as the ones for the instrument cluster, so a quick search might help, so you can at least compare .

It looks like this is it: https://www.amazon.com/Toyota-90011-010 ... B00TNYMXN6

I use this site to look up part numbers, for future reference: http://www.japan-parts.eu/toyota/us/200 ... uct#55900B

You could buy a neo3 or neo4 bulb from superbrightleds.com to replace it with an LED one.

Ok the job is done ,bulb replaced ..
part # from Toyota 90010-01122 / $ 7..
GM only sells the hole unit and tried to tell me the bulb is hard wired...LOL..
I informed him that is funny because I have the bulb in my hand..
Anyways the local Toyota knew what I am talking about and had it in stock..
Takes 20 minutes to do the job..
Thanks to everyone for the help...
