noseefood: hardest part is the trim removal, there is no way not to mar the plastic gap... =(
Robby Wilkinson: THANK YOU! I was about to pay $300 just for someone to take a look!
Kevin Pih: Wow! Thanks for this video! 7 years later, you are still helping people! How awesome is that!!
(By the way, you did so much more than the guys at the dealer for helping me on this…)
Frederick Dunn: Thank you, this is exactly what I needed today :)
Marlin Abundez: What is the bulb, number, part, model?
spoonido: Well done, and thanks for uploading!
Reid Whatley: Yes, indeed. What is the part number for the bulb?
Xai Thao: Exactly what bulb did you buy? Type? Model?
Mike Lig: Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video. It was very helpful.
SGavin: Thank you for the instructional video. Just replaced the HVAC lights on my 2007 Element. I did not have to open up the housingnfor to the HVAC circuitmboard, the lights came out and went in from the back side. The hardest part was getting the electrical connectors disconnected and reconnected.
ajchien: I personally only replace the bulbs that go out. It's not too big of a deal for me to remove the dash parts.
Gary S.: Thanks for this answer, as I, too, was going to ask where your purchased the bulbs. My Honda dealer charged me way too much $ for coolant, so I am thinking his bulbs might be high too. I may check with Rock Auto, as I buy replacement parts for my chevy truck from them.
Gary S.: Thanks, ajehien, for your taking the time to show us how to replace a light bulb. Our 2006 fan blower light bulb appears to be burned out; therefore, I am wondering if I should replace the other bulbs, too? First I thought I could remove the switch from the front, but I am glad that I am watching your video. Our 2006 should be like your 2003.
ajchien: @mtaft00, I agree. I replaced the lights again, and a 3/16 flat screwdriver fits in the slot on the backside.
mtaft00: Thanks for the great video. Have an '05. I didn't have to remove the plastic panel, just used a skinny small flat tipped screwdriver from the back to turn it that half turn, then tipped it over to let it fall out. The hardest part was figuring out how far to put the screwdriver into the edge when attempting to pop off the whole thing, without scarring my dashboard. I used a terrycloth towel to cushion the flat tip before applying leverage. I think it took me less than 10 minutes total.
creature957: Great help, Thanks! I found all you need to get the light out from the backside is a small long common tip screwdriver. Just give it a quarter turn and it comes right out.
Bulb part number and nomenclature: 79629-S3V-A01 BULB, NEO-WEDGE
flyingcatfish: Thanks for this helpful video, ajchien.
Richard Gragg: Very helpful for my 2008 Honda Element. I am a do-it yourselfer and was puzzled (without a shop manual) on how to do it. Worked like a charm.
ranch151: THANK YOU! Very helpful video.
MzThang765: Thanks! This was extremely helpful! :)
