dash lights (heater controls

I have a 98 TJ and no owners manual. How does one get to the heater control group interior lights?

Thanks, CK

Panel not lighting up?
Globes were intermittent on my '97 - had to tap it a couple of times or turn the fan on and off a couple of times before the lights came on - but now they don't work at all.

To access the globes, need to pull the centre part of the dash off.
First unclip the long vent peice up near the windscreen - gently pry it up with a screwdiver.
The centre part of the dash is held on by 2 screws at the top and 1 screw (on a '98) behind the ashtray.
Then pull the centre part off - undo what's holding the HVAC control and pull that out gently - it will still be connected at the back to wires and cables.
If you have the slide controls, there are 2 globes which twist to pull out. I think later models with dial controls have 3 globes.

very nicely explained ^^^. I believe the fuse for it, is behind the glove box. Just open the glove box and unscrew the screw holding the strap. Careful, might fall out on you haha
