From what I understand… That you can pull out the switch replace the bulbs.. but they have to be soldered in… a quick fix iis to order new switches and plug back in

True you can do it that way but its about the same amount of work to remove them either way

i have never worked with a soldering gun, so i prefer to spend $25 a switch and just plug/play rather than frustrate myself with a soldering gun..but that's just me...i know my limitations- furthermore as a father of 5 month old twins, i doubt my wife would allow the time to "tinker" in the garage at this point...lol

I see your point I am good with a soldering iron but don't have time to change mine over to LEDs but the volume controls is wearing off so I guess I will replace them when needed and do the others while I am at it

Good idea to replace the board and worn out controls will order the parts and replace it
