Default Dash Lights

I seem to have quite a few dash lights out behind the buttons, do they just pop off with a bit of force or is there another way round, also looks like i need to replace some behind the heating control knobs....again any help appreciated regarding getting to the bulbs

Hi, i changed mine quite recently (see my thread http://www.kia-forums.com/kia-carniv...n-light-s.html ). They are easy to change. First of all remove the black surround around the buttons, heater controls, stereo etc and disconnect all wiring from buttons but make sure you make a note of what plugged where. Now just push the buttons from the back of the panel and the buttons will unclip from the surround. Now on the sides of the buttons you will see what looks like a little round dial with a cross init (if i remember correctly) - undo these with a screw driver GENTLY as to not damage them, then pull them out of the buttons. This is the bulb and its holder you have undone. To remove the bulb you must undo the wires and the bulb will pull out, refitting is a reversal.

If it is the rear fog light button you need to undo the screw and remove the cover on the side of the button and you will then find the bulb holder under this.

For the heater controls, undo the screws holding the panel in place and on the back you will again notice a little round dial with a cross in it. Undo this to find the bulb in the same way as the buttons. The bulbs i used were the closest ones i could find at a very good price and the quality of them are brilliant, i shall be using them again in the future if the need should arise again.

I was really panicky about doing this originally as i didn't want to muck anything up but it was so easy and i got great satisfaction that i could fix this myself. Give it a go, you may surprise yourself.

Hope this makes sense.

hiya i managed to replace all the bulbs ok however the bigger bulbs for the heater controls are too big and there are 3 to replace, theres the obvious 1 and another 2 hidden under the plastic cover, I replaced them with the original choice you had down for the button bulbs...... like you said very satisfying

On my 2004 model the central dashboard panel is just on plastic clips and pulls off. Yours may differ though, these things can change from model to model. I'm always concerned plastic clips will break but hasn't happened on mine, and I've had it off a couple of times. Was a while ago but I recall I removed the ashtray which gave a lip I could get my fingers onto, and just jiggled and pulled to get the first clips off, then went from there, gently pulling the remaining clips. HTH.
