How do you change the lightbulb in the shifter of an automatic?

Asked by Apr 10, 2007 at 11:06 AM about the 2005 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The bulb went out on the shifter so you can't see which gear (D,N,R,D3,D2) you are in.  This is between the two seats.  Where is the bulb located, what size is it, and how to I get to it?  Could it be a blown fuse that caused it not to work?

Dear Honda5-- Changing the bulb that illuminates the shifter on your 2005 Honda Civic involves removing the center console. My question to you, however, is why don't you just let the dealer do it. Aren't you still under warranty? If so, take advantage of it. Good luck from Bovan.
