Default Heater Control Light

I have a 1993 Accord LX sedan 5 speed. One of the lights behind the heater
control buttons no longer works. I am assuming it is a burned out bulb and
not a fuse because all other lights in the vicinity still works. How
difficult is it to replace this bulb? I have a Haynes manual but all I can
determine from that is that it looks like I have to remove the dash to
replace this bulb. Say it ain't so. Can it be reached from behind without
removing anything major?
Thanks for your input.
Rich

I don't know how to change the bulbs but know how to check fuses. In most
cases, you can look at the fuses and see the ones that have a damaged
filament. Another way is to buy a very inexpensive tester from Radio Shack
or an autoparts store and use it to test each fuse. Ask the salesperson
how to use it--it's really easy to set them up for testing fuses. Make
sure your tester has a battery inside of it. Check those fuses prior to
trying to change the bulb.

You have to remove the dash part where the radio is. Remove that and on the
back of the dash there will be a circuit board. Match the bulb for the
heater control (the bulb will be very small, screw type) so you have to
unscrew it.

It's not hard at all. It would take you about 15-20 minutes to replace.

Usually it's easy to see if the fuse is out. The wire would be cut and it
would be pretty obvious, especially for car fuses where the wires are pretty
thich. Also, the fuse might be black from the burning wire.

To test with multimeter, you'd have to set it to measure OHMS (resistance)
and if the resistance is infinte (usually shown as 0L by the metter) that
means the fuse ends are not connected, and thus the fuse is blown.

It's most likely the bulb though since everything else is working and the
bulb doesn't need a fuse by itself since it needs a very minimal
current/voltage. So I'd just go ahead and replace the bulb.
