hi all, i'm having a problem getting the bulb out of it's socket behind the door latch bezel. It's a small bulb that illuminates the window switch when the lights are turned on. The vehicle is a 94 FWB. Thanks in advance and thanks for all the previous help, I appreaciate it.

You have to pull the bulb straight out really hard. I had trouble with mine, I thought it twisted out, but no, I wound out shattering the bulb, so I got a small pair of pliers, and pulled out the base of the bulb.

It's a real PITA, so have patience.

Once you get the old one out, the new bulb should pop right in.

thanks sdcaddy. I ended up getting it out and it was just as you described. Those bulbs are so small i couldn't get a gruip on it. The pliers worked. Thanks again
