Default Climate Control Knobs - No backlight?

All of my instrument lighting and gauge cluster lighting work fine except for the climate control knobs. I cannot see them at night. I'm assuming they're supposed to be lit. Is there a fuse I should check?

Did you check the bulb? All of the dashboard lights should be on a single fuse, so a burned-out bulb would be more likely than a fuse.

There are 2 bulbs behind the controls. I have one side very dimm. I popped of the knob and the bulb was burned out. Btw, i was looking on eEuroparts and it sems like the bulb is part of a housing of some sort according to the site pics. I ordered a set. They come in 3's. Is it just the bulb or the plastic part as well?

Here you go. The bulbs at a dealer are around $7, maybe cheaper elsewhere... Ron
